FORT SMITH (KFSM) — A local group is making sure people with developmental disabilities will get a chance to experience prom.

More than 200 churches across the country are participating in a “Night to Shine.”

The Night to Shine prom is put on by the Tim Tebow Foundation, and will give hundreds of people across Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley a chance to socialize with others across the area.

The event includes a limo ride, dinner and dancing.

As the event kicks off, the teens will show up in limos and walk down a red carpet in style. Volunteers will style hair and will put makeup on the women, and prom gowns are also provided. The men will be provided with suits and corsages.

After pictures and limo rides, everyone will gather for dinner before heading to the dance floor.

The prom will be hosted at 6 p.m. Friday (Feb.10) at Westark Church on Waldron Road in Fort Smith and at Cross Church in Springdale.
