On prom night, every girl deserves to feel special.

When it came to mustering up the courage to ask someone to prom, senior Shaedon Wendel knew exactly who he wanted to take. The Newton High School student set out to ask his best friend’s sister, Carlie Witterman, a freshman with Down syndrome, to be his date for the night. Wanting to make his promposal extra special, he incorporated her most favorite snack for a "cheesy" but oh-so-adorable stunt!

With flowers and a bag of Doritos in hand, Wendel approached Witterman at her home as she graciously accepted his invitation with a smile on her face and tears in her eyes!

After posting the footage on social media, the video quickly went viral. Doritos contacted the happy couple and offered them the opportunity to soar into prom with a helicopter ride.

To make Witterman’s night even more special, a couple from with Wisconsin, touched by the teen’s story, took the preciousness one step further.

Floyd and Norma Grode approached their daughter, who has cerebral palsy and works at a formalwear store, about giving Witterman a Cinderella-style dress to help make her dreams come true.

The Grodes were able to offer this adorable teen the gift of free jewelry, a garter, and even a scepter and crown. She truly did look like a princess!
