Deadline extended for registration for Night to Shine

PORT ANGELES — The deadline has been extended to Sunday to sign up people 14 and older with special needs for their Night to Shine free prom Feb. 10.

The original deadline was Jan. 15.

The prom will be from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Red Lion Hotel, 221 N. Lincoln St.

The formal affair will feature a red carpet entry, hairstyling, shoeshine service, corsages and boutonnieres, dancing, dinner, portraits, a crowning ceremony for all guests and free transportation if needed to and from the event to Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend by volunteers with Camp Beausite NW in Chimacum.

“The event is a first for our area,” said Cheryl Smith, director of programs at Camp Beausite.

The Port Angeles prom is one of 350 Night to Shine events being held simultaneously in all 50 states, sponsored globally by the Tim Tebow Foundation, Smith said.

The sponsors are Hillcrest Baptist, Clallam Mosaic, The Crossing Church and Camp Beausite NW.

The event will feature about 100 guests with special needs and 100 volunteers who will serve as companions for each guest, organizers said.

“This is an opportunity to celebrate our friends, neighbors and family members with special needs, a chance for them to dress up, have a night on the town and make friends and memories in a safe and fun setting,” said William Gullick, pastor at Hillcrest and chairman of the event.

Donations of hairstyling and makeup services, formal wear and shoes for men and women, and cash are needed. Donations of gowns, suits and dress shoes can be dropped off at the Elwha Klallam Heritage Center, 401 E. First St., and both Clallam YMCA locations in Port Angeles (302 S. Francis St.) and Sequim (610 N. Fifth Ave.).
