Philadelphia - One Philadelphia teenager's mom took his prom to the extreme, spending $25 000 on a camel, three tons of sand and exotic cars. He brought three dates, all in custom-made gowns and wore three different outfits himself.

Saudia Shuler says she had thought of sending her only son, Johnny Eden Jr, to Dubai for a visit. Instead, she decided to bring Dubai to the American state of Pennsylvania for the formal dance.

She brought the sand and the camel into their neighbourhood for photos. Luxury cars , including a Rolls Royce and a Lamborghini, were on loan for the evening.

Shuler says it was all worth it. She says she fought cancer and suffered from a stroke in the past few years. She told herself if she was going to make it, she would put on a big prom for her son.
