( — June 30, 2015) –Prom night is a once in a life time, unforgettable experience. It’s the last time in your life where you get to party with all the friends you’ve made over the last four years. Some of these classmates you might not ever see again so you make sure it’s a memorable night. The students at Dickinson High School in Jersey City, New Jersey are definitely never going to forget their Prom Night, thanks to the NY Giants, Steven Weatherford and Mystical Entertainment Group.


Students wrote an essay on the topic Taking a Stand Against Bullying as part of an essay contest. Five talented students won an all-expenses paid trip to their prom, thanks to the NY Giants and punter Steve Weatherford. Weatherford’s foundation, “Steve Weatherford’s World Champion Foundation,” sponsors an annual essay contest focused on overcoming adversity.


When it came time to choose the right entertainment, Steve Weatherford knew just who to call. Having entertained at the weddings of NY Giants Mr. and Mrs. Zak DeOssie and Mr. and Mrs. Mark Herzlich, as well as events for former Giant David Diehl and former Jet, Bart Scott, Mystical Entertainment Group was the only choice for Steve and his foundation.

“We have had an amazing time and we couldn’t be more thankful for you”, said Steve Weatherford to Mystical Entertainment Group owner,John Macaluso and his team. Mr. Macaluso, a philanthropist deeply rooted in the community, donated his company’s services to this momentous event to give these inner city kids a night like no other.


The New York Giants donated $25,000 towards the price of tickets for the entire senior class of William L Dickinson.  “A prom ticket that was $100 a few months ago, dropped in price to $30, thanks to the Giants generous donation,” said William L. Dickinson High School principal, Frederick Williams.  “For many of our students, that’s the difference between being able to attend their senior prom or not. These kids don’t catch many breaks, so we are so grateful to the New York Giants for providing this substantial one.”


“The local businesses who donate goods and services to our winners are the real heroes,” explains Weatherford. “Like me, they see the promise and talent of these young individuals and are doing their part to show them that these positive attributes are not going unrecognized.”


Tailored and groomed, all the seniors from William L. Dickinson High School gathered at Mayfair Farms in West Orange for an evening of fun and glamour. The theme of the prom was “A Mid-Summer’s Night Eve.”


“I know prom night to me was something I saved up money for a long time, thankfully my parents helped me out a bit. I wanted to make sure these kids had the best time of their lives and also to send a message to them all at the end—that anything is possible if you put your mind and soul into it. My father came here from Italy with a suitcase and didn’t know how to speak the language or have any friends, so to me, these kids should be able to handle anything that life throws at them,” said John Macaluso of Mystical Entertainment.
