Boise Prom for People with Special Needs
This is one of the coolest things I've heard about in a long time. There is a very special prom coming to Boise and the goal is to give people with disabilities a night they will never forget.
Going to the prom is something every teen wants to experience. When you aren't asked to go it can cause you to slump into depression. I know. I went to one prom in high school, but the other years where no-one asked me my self-esteem went in the gutter.
For many people with special-needs, they fall through the cracks and they don't get to participate in one of the most magical nights of a teens life. This program changes all that.
According to an article on KTVB, Calvary Boise church in connection with the Tim Tebow Foundation is pre-paring to throw this one of a kind prom next month.
A "Night to Shine" pulls out all the stops. Attendees get to ride in a limo, walk the red carpet, girls get to have their hair and make-up done, guys get their shoes shined, and inside there is lots of dancing, karaoke, and each guest is crowned prom king or queen!
It takes a lot of work and a lot of people with big hearts to make this event happen. About 400-500 people will be volunteering for this years event and about 225 people are set to attend.
"Night to Shine" is set to take place on February 7th and they are still looking for volunteers, so consider being a part of a night that is sure to be one a lot of people won't forget for many years to come.
