28th Annual Seniors’ Prom

2017 Seniors’ Prom King and Queen and the Irvine Police Department

Our 28th annual Seniors’ Prom “Dancing through Life” was held on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at the Irvine Marriott.  The evening welcomed over 1,000 seniors from all over Orange County and featured the big band music of Johnny Vana’s “Big Band Alumni”.  Thank you to all of the attendees and the Irvine Police Department for making this another memorable evening!

HISTORY OF THE SENIORS’ PROM:

The Seniors’ Prom began in 1989 with the idea of giving the seniors at that time the senior’s prom they never had. Due to the World War II draft, a majority of the 1989 senior population did not have the opportunity to have this classic American teenage experience.  Thus, Age Well created the Seniors’ Prom in hopes to give them the chance to experience this memorable event — and to also, in a small way, say thank you for their sacrifice and service.

Since then, Age Well has annually held the Seniors’ Prom, which has come to be known as “the senior event of the year,” and whose story has attracted many special guests including Betty White, Mickey Rooney, Stephanie Edwards, and Orange County Register’s Jane Glenn Haas.
