Rising LPGA star Belén Mozo is going to the prom with my friend Alex!
Over Christmas break, Alex’s sister sent me the link to the YouTube video of Alex asking Belén Mozo to be his date to the Bearden High School prom. You may recall that I posted about it here in January.
My wife and I sat with Alex and his parents at the Easter Vigil. After Mass, we heard the good news that Belén had said yes to Alex’s request. What makes it really special is that Belén will take time before the prom to do a golf exhibition at Gettysvue to benefit Special Olympics.
Alex and his parents hope to bring Special Olympics golf to Knoxville. Belén’s visit will draw attention to the cause. The Knoxville News Sentinel reported on Alex and Belén. The story included some nice pictures by photographer Saul Young.
In case you missed it, here’s the original video of Alex asking Belén to the prom. Below that is the video of Belén calling Alex to say yes.
