ABOUT FLORENCE MOM PROM
The Most Epic Girls' Night Event In the Pee Dee!
Florence Mom Prom is a themed charity event where ladies 21+ get a chance to dress up and dance the night away in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). Started by moms with children diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), the event was designed to be a fun girls night to bring awareness to CF and encourage donations to the CFF.
Hosted at Florence Country Club, ladies will be greeted at check-in and can peruse some fabulous items for auction. Upon entry into the event we encourage ladies to:
Additional CFF donation opportunities will be available during the event so bring your wallet!
We want Florence Mom Prom to be a night you’ll remember! Invite all your besties and make reservations to dine in Florence before hand. Local businesses are a huge supporter of Florence Mom Prom and we want to show our appreciation!
We also want everyone to be safe. Drinks will be available through a cash bar so be prepared to get an Uber, call for a ride home, or have a designated driver if needed.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is driven by a dream that one day— every person with cystic fibrosis will have the chance to live a long, healthy life. Recognized globally, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has led the way in the fight against cystic fibrosis, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies.
Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis and a life free from the burden of this disease. We will not leave anyone behind. You are an important part of our progress. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
In people with cystic fibrosis, a defective gene causes a thick buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria, leading to infections, extensive lung damage and respiratory failure. Many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies, either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond.
Those who can take current therapies continue to face challenging complications leading to hospitalizations, missed school and work, and significant interruptions in their daily routine. Sadly, many children and adults with CF still face the sobering prospect of a shortened life span.
2023 Florence Mom Prom Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Ambassador: Taylor Hicks
Taylor is a 16 year old Florence native who lives with cystic fibrosis. Unlike most people living with cystic fibrosis, Taylor was not diagnosed until she was 2 ½ years old. Through the years Taylor has experienced multiple hospital stays, ER trips, taken multiple prescriptions, and maintained a rigorous diet. In 2019 she took a turn for the worse with three hospital stays in one month, starting 36 pills a day, and the loss of 15% lung function. After starting Trikafta in 2020, Taylor’s health drastically changed. Today she has the highest lung function to date, no hospital stays since 2019, and on limited medication. Due to fundraising efforts by families and donors, Taylor is able to live her life like any other teenager and looks forward to her future.
