MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Saturday night was a magical evening for individuals with special needs in Wisconsin Dells.

The "Dancing Under the Stars" prom took place at the Easter Seals Wisconsin Respite Lodge. From dinner to a red carpet with paparazzi, many were dressed to the nines for the night.

"I've never been to prom or anything, so my mom thought it'd be fun for me to come. Nobody would ever ask me in school. It's just fun to dance with people and have fun," said Elizabeth Custer, who attended the event.

Thanks to a donation from the Baraboo Elks Lodge #688, the night was free for all.
