Night To Shine Stands Out in Third Year

Night To Shine Stands Out in Third Year

Catherine Loula and her caregiver, Vernette Stevenson, were among those waiting to get to the "Coronation Station" so that Loula could be crowned one of the queens of the prom.

This event, for teens with special needs, is a prom-themes party complete with red carpet intro and paparazzi.

"First year we had 56 guests, last year 111 and over 220 this year", Hill said.

"Night to Shine", which marked its third year Friday evening, honored 90,000 guests in the special needs community in 540 host churches located in the USA and 16 other countries. She says over 220 volunteers worked the event on Friday.

People came from all over west Texas for the Night to Shine Prom and as far away as Eastern New Mexico.


While traditional prom can bring on nerves for some, that's not the case at Night to Shine.

A Night to Shine was hosted by hundreds of churches around the world.

"They do not judge you", Austin said.

"Every year, it gets better and better".
