A special prom fit with a Candyland theme was held in Voorhees, New Jersey on Friday night.

An organization called Fantastic Friends hosted the party at the Mansion.

It was for people ages 13 to 26 who have special needs.

In keeping with the theme, some of the characters from Candyland came to life - and joined guests on the dance floor.

College student Marissa Hacker founded the group. She was inspired by her twin brother who has autism.

Every month she hosts events around South Jersey.
