WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Local churches came together on Friday to deliver an unforgettable prom night experience for teenagers with special needs.
The red carpet was rolled out at Port City Community Church for the ‘Night to Shine’ event, as hundreds of disabled children danced the night away. The church is one of more than 500 churches around the world hosting the event.
Cinderella’s Closet Wilmington provided free outfits for the dance. One guest says he was excited to be at the event.
“I’ve been here before. I’m happy to be once here again, to support. I love Night to Shine, everybody is Prom Queen and King we have a good time, put on our outfits and just come out and have a good time,” Rashawn Gray said.
‘Night to Shine’ was started back in 2014 by the Tim Tebow Foundation with Lifepoint Church to ‘provide an incredible prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older.’ Now it’s hosted in 11 countries globally.
