Prom night for some special East Texans

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The Rose Garden was transformed into prom night for some special East Texans.

For the tenth year the Community Workforce of Texas held its Crystal Ball.

Hundreds of East Texans with special needs were delivered in limousines for a night of photos, dancing and dining.

The ball is a chance for kids and adults with special needs to interact in a large social setting. 

"It's fun and special needs people can do whatever they want, you know, and not to be picked on. If there's bullies out there you better leave us alone," says Kim Session, a prom attendee.

The Crystal Ball is a major fundraising event for the Community Workforce Center.
