Former NBA player Robert Horry will make a special appearance along with his wife Keva at a special needs prom, “Enchanted Evening: A Night at the Ball,” on Friday at the Goldy Lewis Community Center in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

The event provides guests with dinner, dancing, a horse-drawn carriage ride and souvenir, students only.

Horry’s daughter, Ashlyn was diagnosed at birth with 1p36 Deletion syndrome and died in 2011 at the age of 17.

1p36 is a congenital genetic disorder characterized by moderate to severe intellectual disability, delayed growth, hypotonia, seizures, limited speech ability, malformations, hearing and vision impairment, and distinct facial features. It is estimated that the syndrome occurs in one in every 5,000 to 10,000 births.

Ashlyn’s legacy lives on with the creation of the Ashlyn Horry Foundation, which is to serve as a role model to disabled youth, while supporting initiatives pertaining to their quality of life, education and social well-being.
