Children from around Stark County got the royal treatment at Salon at Belden Place Friday when hairstylists donated their time to give about 13 foster kids up-do's and haircuts before their prom that night.
The kids attend different high schools throughout the county, but they came together through , a North Canton-based private nonprofit that offers foster care and adoption services.
The Pathway prom took place Friday night at Shady Hollow Country Club in Massillon. The kids wore donated suits and dresses, said Kari Willoughby, vice president of training and development for the Junior League of Stark County, a nonprofit women's organization that worked with Pathway to create the prom.
"I just think through this whole process they've really been able to realize that it has been a big undertaking for them to plan but they can do it when they set their mind on something," she said. "And (when) they work hard they are able to achieve their goal."
Editor's note: North Canton Patch takes special care not to reveal the identities of children in the foster care system. For that reason, we did not film any of the children's faces Friday.
