The sale of some very special T-shirts will enable young people with life-threatening illnesses to attend the first “No Worries Now” prom in the Sacramento area.

The dance, themed “Sunset in the Bahamas,” will take place Friday, June 22, from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Woodland Elks Lodge, 500 Bush St.

The T-shirts bear the slogan “One Rule No Tears,” and are being sold in memory of Sammi Ashburn, a Pioneer High student who lost her battle with osteosarcoma a week after her 16th birthday in April.

Pioneer students Veronica Perez and Margaret Lambert took on the challenge of selling 200 shirts to their classmates. That goal was easily reached; they actually sold more than 1,000 shirts.

Ashburn attended three “No Worries Now” proms in the Los Angeles region, where they were first established. The parties are for young people with life-threatening illnesses who are not likely to live until their own high school proms. The youths are treated to a carefree evening of fun and memories.

Ashburn’s mother, Tina Canchola, said she’s so grateful to the “No Worries Now” prom and its founder, Fred Scarff, and she pledged to bring it to Sacramento. Every shirt sold helps sponsor a child at prom.

Children ages 6 to 18 are invited to attend the prom. They’re asked to arrange their participation by contacting the pediatric sub-specialties social worker at their hospital or, if they’re no longer in treatment, to call Canchola at (530) 661-7101.

All young people may bring one escort of their choosing.

T-shirts, at $20 each, and sponsorship opportunities are still available; contact Lambert at dingleart@hotmail.com.
