A worldwide, unforgettable prom night experience that is changing Valentine's Day weekend from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God's love for people with special needs. Guests will be honored with a friendly paparazzi red carpet, crowns and tiaras, corsages, and boutonnieres, limo rides, games, dancing, food, photos, and VIP treatment. The vision is to provide a night for our guests to shine and most importantly, for Christ's love to Shine.
