From staff reports

After shifting to a virtual event during the pandemic, the Night to Shine prom is returning in person this year for area teens and adults with disabilities.

People aged 14 and older are invited to attend the dance planned just for them.

Reservations are encouraged as soon as possible for the event, which is 6-9 p.m. Feb. 10 at First English Lutheran Church, 2727 E. Main St., Richmond.

Volunteers ages 16 and older are also needed in a variety of roles from 5-9 that night. Their registration is needed by Feb. 7.

Dancers and volunteers can sign up through Eventbrite.com links for each group that are posted on the “Night to Shine Richmond” page on Facebook.

First English again is one of the 15 churches around Indiana offering a “prom experience centered on God’s love.”

More than 100,000 people with disabilities typically attend the annual event around the world, with help from 200,000 volunteers.

The prom started nationally in 2014 as a project of the Tim Tebow Foundation.
