LPGA pro Belen Mozo turned one Knoxville, Tennessee student’s prom into a night he will never forget. The Jupiter resident accompanied Alex Notte to his senior prom at Beardon High School in the Knoxville area last Saturday night.

Notte has a neuro developmental disability and invited Mozo to his prom through a youtube video that was posted to Mozo’s facebook page with the help of his sister.

Mozo, a member at the Medalist Club in Hobe Sound, attended a charity golf event benefiting the Special Olympics as Alex’s club in Knoxville before attending the prom in a 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.

Alex became a big fan of Mozo two years ago while attending an LPGA event in New York. After watching her play, and overcoming neurological, vision, and hearing problems, he took up the game of golf.

Mozo will now turn her attention to this week’s LPGA event. She will be competing in the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic held in Mobile, Alabama. Fellow Medalist member Stacy Lewis will also be competing in the event.
