Black Tie International:
Renal Support Network Hosts 12th Annual Teen Prom For
Hundreds with Kidney Disease
 
 


 
 
RENAL SUPPORT NETWORK HOSTS 12th ANNUAL
TEEN PROM FOR HUNDREDS WITH KIDNEY DISEASE
 
"America's Got Talent" Finalist and Three-Time
Kidney Transplant Recipient, Michael Grasso Is Special Guest

 

GLENDALE, CA - Prom season comes early for hundreds of teens with kidney disease.  Renal Support Network (RSN) goes back to school to host the 12th Annual Renal Teen Prom on Sunday, January 16, 2011 at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California (a suburb in Los Angeles) from 6pm - 11pm.
 
Themed "Out of this World," the Renal Teen Prom is the inspiration of Lori Hartwell, RSN's President and Founder, who missed her own prom due to kidney disease. "Many teenagers with kidney disease miss large amounts of school and their own prom because of prolonged absences due to health issues," said Hartwell. "The Renal Teen Prom brings these young people together to share their experiences, strengths and hopes with other kidney teens. It lets them know they are not alone and that one friend can make a difference."
 
Set in the style of a gala senior prom, over 400 teens and young adults, ages ranging from 14 to 24-years-old, who are on dialysis, pre-dialysis or with a transplant will receive an evening of glamour, fun and excitement.  The prom attracts not only Southern California teens, but teens from across the United States: Washington, Arizona, Texas, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Colorado and New Jersey.
 
RSN, a nonprofit organization that provides non-medical services and support to those affected by chronic kidney disease, will be providing an enchanted evening for young people to experience a night of dancing, entertainment, dinner and hors d'oeuvres, limousine rides, glamour photos and appearances by Hollywood celebrities who sign autographs, mingle and show their support. This year, RSN is thrilled to have as a special guest, "America's Got Talent" star magician, Michael Grasso, who was one of the top-ten finalists on the show. As a three-time kidney transplant recipient, Grasso has a personal connection to kidney disease and can relate to and inspire young people who attend this memorable event.
 
RSN's Renal Teen Prom has caught the attention and support of Hollywood celebrities.  Previous attendance have included:  Jack Black ("Gulliver's Travels"); Saige Ryan Campbell ("I Heart Huckabees"); Beto Cuevas (La Ley former lead singer); Pam Dawber ("Mork & Mindy"); Kristen Dunst ("Spider Man"); Stephen Furst ("Animal House"); Mark Harmon ("NCIS"); John McCook ("The Bold and the Beautiful"); Phillip Palmer (KABC News Anchor); Alfonso Ribeiro ("The Fresh Prince of Bel Air"); Sinbad ("Houseguest" and Comedian); Mark Dacascos ("Iron Chef America"); Lacey Heward (kidney patient and World Cup Mono-Ski Champion); Joe Hahn (Linkin Park DJ); Roger Lodge ("Blind Date" and radio host of "The sportsLodge"); Manny on the Streets (KIIS-FM DJ); Gary Sinise ("CSI: NY"); Alexa Vega ("Spy Kids") and Michael Welch ("Joan of Arcadia" and "Twilight").
 
To ensure that everyone in attendance feels elegant, evening gowns will be donated for the women and ties for the young men. Transportation to the prom from Southern California areas can be provided.
 
Notre Dame High School students, alumni and RSN volunteers devote an entire weekend decorating the school gymnasium for the prom. The room will feature extravagant decorations by Hollywood movie and television professionals including set designer, Dan Proett, from the Emmy-award winning daytime drama, "General Hospital" and Tony Ward from PRG (lighting for the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards and Emmy Awards), among others. The community (patients, health care professionals, family members and numerous volunteers) comes together to make this special event an annual success and a celestial night teens will never forget.
 
For more information about the Renal Teen Prom, to make a donation or for an invitation, the public should contact Renal Support Network at (866) 903-1728 or visit www.RSNhope.org.
 
Quick Facts About Kidney Disease (source: www.emedicinehealth.com):
  • 16.8% of all adults in the United States (1 in 6) are in one of the five stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD).
  • Nearly half of the people in the early stages of CKD are not even aware that they have problems with their kidneys.
  • The main causes of CKD in the United States are Diabetes and Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • These ethnic groups are at greater risk for developing CKD: African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Pacific Islanders and Native Americans since diabetes and hypertension are more common among members of these ethnic groups.
  • Over 83,000 people in the U.S. are waiting for a kidney.
