We can't wait to see all of our Kings🤴& Queens👸 on Friday, February 9, 2024!
We are so excited to be a host of Night to Shine 2024, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation! This is an unforgettable prom night experience centered on God’s love, celebrating people with special needs.
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 limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, prom favors, and a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.
Every guest must be registered prior to the event so we can ensure proper staffing & resources.
If you or someone else will be attending the event (agency caretaker or parent), YOU must complete the Volunteer registration with your information or the chaperone's information.

The event begins at 6 PM Friday, February 9, 2024.
Our team will be in the parking lot awaiting your arrival! They will assist you in parking.
Connect Church 1103 East L Street, Russellville, AR 72801.
At 6 PM, we will begin check-in in the front lobby (don't worry, our parking team will help you find it). As you register, you will be partnered with your ‘buddy’ for the evening.
We’ll have limo rides, photo booths, a ballroom for dancing, a sensory room, karaoke, dinner, and more! You can participate in any of these activities that you like.
Guests and parents are encouraged to dress up to their desired level of comfort. It is a prom event, and formal attire is largely represented, but we want everyone to enjoy themselves, and for some, that may mean a more casual style.
If you are anxious about what you’re wearing, don’t be!
Ready to join the team?! Awesome! You can look over the various roles available before filling out the volunteer form.
NOTE: You must be 14 years of age or older to partner with us for this event.
