Duke Children's Dunkin' Prom

Presented by Meg's Smile Foundation 

Due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus across the country, the Duke Children’s Dunkin’ Prom, Presented by Meg’s Smile Foundation, will be postponed. 

Originally scheduled to take place on April 4th, the event will be rescheduled after this policy has been lifted.

This decision was made only after reviewing the range of options available in light of the rapidly changing situation in North Carolina, and nationally.  The goal is to minimize situations in which members of our community might be exposed to those who have COVID-19, and to protect our patients, students, faculty and staff who might be at elevated risk.  This approach is consistent with recommendations from public health officials, and also mirrors the actions taken by many universities across the country.

We are grateful to our sponsors, Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation and Meg’s Smile Foundation, for their support, and we are excited to hold this event as soon as it can be rescheduled.

For questions about the prom or other ATLAS programming, please contact atlas@duke.edu or (919) 385-0842.

Pre-Prom Sock Hop

We hosted a fun and successful sock hop in February that included swing dance lessons from the Duke Swing Dance Club, a DJ, face painting, arts and crafts, and light refreshments. Be sure to check out our video!
