Unforgettable Prom Experience for People With Special Needs Returns to Binghamton
Night to Shine is a special prom experience for teens and adults who live with special needs and this unforgettable experience will return to Binghamton in 2020. At Night to Shine, there is music, lights, gowns, tuxedos, delicious food and desserts, limo rides, red carpet walks, and even the crowning of Prom King and Prom Queen.
The Night to Shine prom returns to Chenango Bridge as First United Methodist Church will once again host the event, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, at the Chenango Valley High School on Friday, February 7, 2020.
Up to 75 guests will be allowed to attend a Night to Shine at no charge. Night to Shine guests must be at least 14-years-old by February 7, 2020. Also, Night to Shine guests will have access to prom dresses and suits/jackets. Those wishing to be a Night to Shine guests are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible as space is limited.
Safety is the top priority and each guest who attends Night to Shine will be assigned a trained buddy who will accompany them through the duration of the night. Volunteers are needed so if you'd like to lend a hand and are over the age of 18, you can sign up here. If you are between the ages of 14 and 18 and would like to help, there's a special registration for you here.
According to First United Methodist Church of Chenango Bridge, "all volunteers 18 and older are required to submit the Night to Shine Background Check form in order for their application to be reviewed and approved unless a background check was processed on your behalf last year by the Night to Shine Chenango Bridge organization. The form includes directions for returning the completed form. If you have any questions, you may contact us at Night2Shinecb@gmail.com." You can find the background check form here.
If you know a special needs teen or adult who would like to participate, don’t wait to register! Remember that only 75 guests will be able to participate, so you’ll want to register quickly.
On his website for the Tim Tebow Foundation, Tim Tebow writes,
We would not be able to accomplish our mission without God’s blessings and the support of our generous donors and partners...We hope that you will consider joining our team through prayer and financial support to help change lives. Together we WILL make a difference!”
