More than 400 teenagers and young adults with kidney disease danced the night away at a special prom on Sunday. And Hollywood star Jack Black made a big appearance.

The comedian, dressed as a king, entertained the guests at the "Renal Teen Prom." The event was held at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks.

The event was created to give young people with kidney disease, who often spend much of their time on dialysis, a night of fun.

ABC7 anchor Phillip Palmer was also there to lend his support to the event.
