“Tonight is all about making these special kings and queens feel loved. We pamper them, we take them for a ride in limos, we have them walk the red carpet, we crown them king and queen of the prom,” said one of the organizers.

On one night, 721 churches from around the world come together to host Night to Shine for approximately 115,000 honored guests through the support of 215,000 volunteers!
