Night to Shine is:
A worldwide movement.
An unforgettable prom night experience.
A night when all guests are kings and queens of the prom.
Held around the world on ONE night – the Friday before Valentine’s Day every year Serving as a catalyst for churches to begin or enhance ministry for people with special needs, allowing the honored guests of Night to Shine and their families to be a part of a church community where they feel welcomed, loved and supported. Changing the narrative on how people with special needs are viewed.
Every guest of Night to Shine enters this complimentary event on a red carpet complete with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi. Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining stations, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a karaoke room, a catered dinner, a Respite Room for parents and caretakers and, of course, dancing! In February 2020, 721 churches representing 36 denominations and 215,000 volunteers in 50 states and 34 countries came together on one night to celebrate 110,000 honored guests with special needs in what has become not just a nationwide event, but a worldwide movement, celebrating people with special needs.
For two years, due to the global circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, Night to Shine was celebrated with Shine-Thru Parade adaptations of Night to Shine, gift deliveries, decorating honored guest yards, and a worldwide Virtual Celebration with thousands of people with special needs tuning in for a unique experience complete with a virtual red carpet, messages from celebrity guests, music, dancing and of course, a crowning ceremony where each guest was crowned a king or queen of the prom!
Night to Shine events returned to fully in-person in February 2023 and this coming February, Night to Shine 2024 will celebrate its 10-year anniversary. Each guest receives a crown or tiara, not just because they are all kings and queens of the prom, but because that’s how God sees them every day.
