Tanya Kach often thought about going to prom when she was 18. But instead, she was living an absolute nightmare. Kach, who’s from Clairton, disappeared when she was just 14 and held captive by a security guard at her school for 10 years until she escaped in 2006.
But when Tanya’s fiance, Karl McCrum, heard about our Second Chance Prom he called Bubba Show and asked if there was any way we could help him make Tanya’s dream come true.
Well, Saturday night, Tanya and Karl boarded the Gateway Clipper Fleet’s Empress with all of us from 100.7 Star. Tanya says Karl “surprised me and came home with the corsage and rose for him.” Karl said it was just “a chance to give her something she didn’t have” And she got to enjoy it ALL this time around. Everything from getting the dress, to getting her hair done and finally…..getting the prom pictures!!!
