What is A Night To Remember?
A Night to Remember is a free prom event FOR those affected by disabilities between the age of 15 and 21. Each of our Honored Guests will receive a free prom dress or tuxedo in the weeks prior to the event. At the prom, we partner each Honored Guest with a mainstream Host of similar age to ensure their fun and safety throughout the evening. During the prom, each Guest gets their hair and makeup done by a stylist, a shoe shine, a corsage or boutonniere, formal photo, limo ride, a walk down the red carpet, a restaurant-style dinner and of course, the dance. Inside, a live DJ provides music for everyone to dance the night away.
While this is all happening, the parents, guardians and siblings are invited to a different building for their own night of dinner and fun! In addition, the dance will be live streamed into this building so you don’t miss out on watching your child have a night they will always remember.
A Night to Remember is a free event for our Honored Guests and made possible through donations and sponsorships from individuals and businesses in our community.
Why We're Doing A Night To Remember
In the 1940s, a young couple named Bob & Lucille Willems moved from Dinuba to plant roots in Visalia. They noticed kids who would walk by their home to and from school so they created a space FOR those kids to let them know they mattered. Eventually, this grew into Neighborhood Church. Over the last 70 years, the heart of Neighborhood Church has stayed the same ... being a church that is FOR people, FOR kids and FOR Visalia because we believe everyone should know they matter.
Our commitment to being FOR kids and FOR the next generation led us to create a sensory and special needs environment on our campus. The space is accessible to every child and teenager who would benefit from this kind of space. It is a safe spot for our friends to retreat to during large group activities or on difficult days. Learn more about our sensory and special needs environment.
Being FOR kids and FOR Visalia led us to create an event where teens affected by disability are not only welcomed. but celebrated!
We are so excited to host our very first annual A Night to Remember! We hope you will join us as an honored guest, volunteer or sponsor!
