Carlin Prom

A night when dreams come true

Teenage patients have the opportunity to experience prom at Nicklaus Children's thank to the generosity of our supporters.

Nicklaus Children’s is proud to host the longest-standing prom at a children’s hospital in South Florida. The Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Carlin Family Prom began in 2014, thanks to the generosity of Adam and Chanin Carlin.

Up to 120 current and recently hospitalized teenage patients attend prom every year. Teens (and their parents) tell us every year that the celebration allowed them to take a break from the health stressors they deal with in their daily life.

Adam and Chanin Carlin are longstanding supporters of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, who dedicate their time and philanthropic support to a variety of causes in the community. The couple has a passion for giving teen patients the opportunity to experience a prom celebration, despite any health limitations, in a medically safe environment.
