Carlin Prom

Nicklaus Children’s is proud to host the longest-standing prom at a children’s hospital in South Florida. The Carlin Family Nicklaus Children's Hospital 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.
