What is Night to Shine?

Night to shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s Love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older.

What can I volunteer for?

We rely on the help of many volunteers to make this event possible.  Each honored guest requires a buddy.  We also have teams for setup, respite room, hair/makeup, shoe shine, welcome team, and many others.

Is there volunteer training?

Yes!  All volunteers are required to complete a background check and attend mandatory training in January at First Baptist Church Valdosta.

What is a buddy volunteer responsible for?

Each guest will be accompanied by a buddy throughout the evening, providing companionship and general assistance during the event.  All buddies will have passed a background check and attended mandatory buddy training at First Baptist.

What is the dress code for the event?

We encourage our guests to wear prom attire (dresses and suits).  We do offer a dress/suit shop for our honored guest.  You will receive more information about this when you register as a guest.  Buddies may also want to dress in prom attire.  Event t-shirts are available for purchase when you register as a volunteer.

What is available for caregivers/parents during the event?

Night to Shine is for you TOO!!  The AMAZING caregivers and parents of our guests are invited to a special event on campus.  We offer refreshments and a quiet environment for you to relax.  You are not required to stay.  Feel free to leave campus and come back to pick up your guest at 9:00pm.

Is there an admission charge?
