Fenway transforms into prom for hospital patients

BOSTON (WHDH) - Fenway Park was transformed into a prom for dozens of teenagers Friday night.

Boston Children’s Hospital teamed up with the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation to put on a prom at the historic ballpark for patients battling serious illnesses.

Grace, 17, is on the waiting list for a new kidney, and Friday night was just what she needed.

“It’s amazing,” she said. “It’s a nice change from the hospital.”

Change is what the prom committee was hoping for.

“They’re not thinking about being in the hospital. They’re just thinking about being a teenager,” said Beth Donegan of Children’s Hospital. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer them the opportunity.”
