2024 Night to Shine - Friday, February 9!

Who can volunteer?

Each of our volunteers are tasked with the incredible responsibility to ensure that our honored guests of Night to Shine and their families get to be part of our church community where they feel welcomed, loved and supported. Through this event, we hope to change the narrative on how people with special needs are viewed.

Volunteers must:

    • Complete a Federal Background Check
    • Wear the correct attire for their role

If you want to play a part, but can’t volunteer for the night, consider becoming a SPONSOR! Sponsors help to purchase corsages, crowns, and other special pieces for the night! Email Katrina@ThatsGrace.org for more details.
