RSN's 23rd Annual Teen Prom for Young People Who Have Kidney Disease

Sunday, January 16, 2022 4pm PT

For the past 22 years, RSN has hosted an annual prom at no charge to teens who have kidney disease. RSN founder Lori Hartwell was on dialysis from age 14-24 and doesn’t want her peers to miss this special event. One friend can make a difference!

Join us for a hybrid event either virtually or live at Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in Hollywood California! This year we’re excited to be getting together in person and online. This gives us all another chance to see old friends and also make new friends from all across the United States.


Our live event guests will mingle with each other and tour Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in Hollywood, California while our virtual event guests will tour the museum virtually and have more online fun during the event. Music entertainment will be provided at the virtual event by DJ Sweet Baby J!

Each live event and virtual event attendee will receive a special delivery box of gifts and goodies before the event (U.S. residents only). Each box will have raffle tickets, prom-themed fun stuff, kidney-friendly snacks and drinks and more surprises! There are no fees to attend, but registration is required.

You must sign up by January 3rd in order to receive your box before the event.

Highlights from Past RSN Annual Renal Teen Prom’s

Prom season comes early for teens and young adults who have been diagnosed with kidney disease, who are on dialysis or who have a kidney transplant. The first prom was held in 1999 by Lori Hartwell, RSN’s President and Founder, who missed her own prom due to being on dialysis from age 12-24 and missing many school activities.  She didn’t want other teens to miss this coming of age event and have the opportunity to meet each other. The prom brings these young people together to share their experiences, strengths, and hopes. It lets them know they are not alone and that ‘one friend can make a difference’.  This event is at no charge to attendees and their guests.
