In March, nine West Branch clients enjoyed an amazing prom-like experience at the City Hill Church Northore’s “A Night to Shine.” The night began with family members and staff being ushered downstairs, away from the clients, for their own night a pampering with a meal and a massage. Upstairs all the clients had the opportunity to get their hair and makeup done, then they were paired with a community member as their “buddy” for the evening.
There was a DJ and an active dance floor. Clients enjoyed photo booths, a balloon artist, a caricaturist, photographers, and a fully catered dinner. Outside fire fighters and police officers opened up their fire engines and police cars for the clients to explore. There was a red carpet and limo rides around the neighborhood. The evening ended with all of the buddies putting a crown or tiara into their partner’s head as the room cheered for the Kings and Queens of the prom.
