(MCT) -- There’s at least one local senior prom night that's not for high- schoolers . This one is for people 65 and older.

Senior Prom Night will be 10 a.m. to noon May 20 at Henderson County Senior Center, 3344 State Highway 31 East in Athens.

Christi Faulkner, marketer for A Trinity Valley Home Health and Therapy Services, has organized the event since it first occurred in 2011.

"We wanted to do this to give back to the community through our seniors, to allow them to go back to their young years," Faulkner said. "Some may never have gotten to go to a prom. It's our way of giving back to the seniors."

James Wages, an Elvis impersonator, will provide entertainment.

"We usually have 15 or 20 door prizes," Faulkner said. "We have a lot."
