KANSAS CITY, MO — For one night each year, a “Night to Shine” gives people with special needs all around the world an unforgettable prom night experience. Co-Directors Charles and Tammy Beeghley of Summit Point Church discuss how the annual event got started in Kansas City, and its great success over the last four years. The event on February 8, 2019, gives hundreds of people with special needs, ages 14 and up, the opportunity to enjoy a night out that celebrates them. Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, prom favors, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom. A “Night to Shine” needs your help to make this possible and is looking for volunteers. To sign up, visit: “Night to Shine.”
