Volunteers prep for fourth annual Ohio Valley “Night to Shine”


In just a few weeks, hundreds of churches across the U.S. will host an unforgettable prom night for those with special needs. 

Bowman United Methodist Church in Marshall County is no different.

They’re getting ready to host their fourth annual Ohio Valley “Night to Shine” Prom.

Each year, people with special needs become kings and queens during this special prom put on through the Tim Tebow Foundation.

The evening of joy and fun begins with the royal treatment.

Then, prom-goers enjoy a red carpet entrance, dinner and dancing.

The special night is made possible through the church, volunteers and donations.

Assistant Coordinator Lori Mason said the joy of those in attendance is worth every hour spent planning.

“The special needs community is an important group. The Tim Tebow foundation recognizes that and has a love for special needs people. We share that calling,” Mason said.

Mason added that every person attending the prom will be named prom king or queen.

They’re also hosting an extra special guest at the prom this year, Liberty.

Liberty is the Marshall County Prosecutor’s Office therapy dog.

If you’re interested in attending, the prom will take place on Friday, February 8th from 6-9 p.m at the Moundsville Center.
