Mount Pisgah UMC in Johns Creek and the Johns Creek Civitan Club are hosting an inaugural event for the special needs community on Saturday, April 9. The Dream Big Dance is being created to provide an unforgettable evening of dancing, music and food.

Everyone attending will receive star treatment with a walk on the red carpet, photography, and a special dinner with a quartet enhancing the ambiance. After dinner, a DJ is set to spin some music as everyone takes to the dance floor! There will be a separate area for parents to relax and enjoy a movie.

For girls who need just the right dress for the event, Girl Scout and Mount Pisgah member Hannah Zemke is collecting donated formal dresses.

The dance will be in the Gathering Area on the church’s North Campus, located at 2850 Old Alabama Road in Johns Creek. For more information about the Dream Big Dance, visit
