GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - The Tim Tebow Foundation's "Night to Shine Prom" is coming to Greenville, NC for the first time.
The event is a unique one that happens simultaneously with other Night to Shine proms around the world.
The prom is designed particularly for special needs populations ages 14 & older.
There will be at least one Night to Shine prom in all 50 states and 20 countries and 90,000 people will be crowned prom king or queen.
The prom is being held at St. James United Methodist Church in Greenville on Friday, February 8.
Organizers are expecting hundreds of attendees and volunteers and have already reached attendee capacity for the building.
*Registration is no longer open for families.*
January 30 is the last day to sign up to volunteer. A background check is required for a $10 fee to volunteer.
Right now, organizers say they are still in need of a handicap limo to help transport guests to and from the event. Anyone with information that may help should contact event organizer Lisa Jordan at (252) 347-1138 or e-mail her at email@example.com.
For guests, Sapphire Salon is offering free hair and make-up on February 8 from 12 p.m.- 5 p.m. Appointments are needed.
Men’s Warehouse is also offering a tuxedo rental discount for men attending the prom.
A boutique will be set up at J.H. Rose High School from 2 p.m.- 4p.m. on February 4 to offer anyone with special needs an outfit to wear to the event, like a prom dress or tuxedo.
