Now, 13 years later, the actor whipped out the very same Prince Charming suit he wore in the film to accompany his wife, Sarah Roemer, to the Children's Hospital of Orange County's "Alice in Wonderland" themed prom Saturday night.
"Had the amazing pleasure of attending the #CHOC Prom last night," Murray captioned a video he posted to Instagram. "This is one of 4 or 5 rooms they decorated. It was incredible. I Brought Austin Ames out of retirement, I mean Hey it's Prom! Met the best kids & got to dance with my Wife at her 1st Prom."
The now 35 year old also gave a shout-out to Warner Bros. for letting him wear the suit. "Big win- IT STILL FITS!"
Roemer also shared a photo from the special night, captioning the shot: "I waited for a prince and he took me to my 1st prom."
Saturday marked the hospital's 16th annual oncology prom, where 250 cancer patients and guests attended. The purpose of the evening is to provide a night of teenage normalcy for those who have had to miss their proms due to cancer treatments or weak immune systems.
Prom guest Chad Michael Murray greets Liliana Paez Gallardodiring their annual CHOC oncology prom at CHOC Children's hospital in Orange, CA on Saturday. Former and current Children’s Hospital of Orange County teen cancer patients and their guests held the annual event with the theme "Alice in Wonderland". The event provides a night of normalcy for teens who may have had to skip their high school proms because they were in the hospital or have weakened immune systems. On Saturday, they dressed in gowns and tuxedos, danced and posed for pictures. Hairdressers and make-up artists helped the teens get ready.
