Quad-cities area residents cruised back to the 1950s Saturday evening for People Who Care's senior prom at the Prescott Resort.

The annual fundraising event featured a live performance by the Sedona Dynamite Divas and disc jockeying by local radio host Chris "The Wild" Hussey.

To add to the aura of the evening, the event included classic cars parked outside the entrance, a soda fountain and nonstop '50s music hits by artists such as Bobby Day, Elvis, Chuck Berry and The Drifters.

People Who Care volunteers provide one-on-one non-medical assistance to adults unable to drive because of physical limitations of age, illness or disability, in order to help them continue living in their own homes, independent living apartments and communities. They serve seniors in the greater Prescott area and surrounding Chino Valley, Prescott Valley/Dewey and Yarnell/Weaver Mountains communities.

"We helped over 500 people last year," said Fritzi Mevis, the executive director of People Who Care.
