ROME -- Nearly 200 people came out to 'Night to Shine' at Mohawk Valley Community College in Rome Friday.


'Night to Shine' is a prom night experience for people with special needs.


The annual event takes place every year on the Friday before Valentine's day. Hosts of the event say they want to change the trend of Valentine's Day to make it a day of giving back. 


Event goers came out with their family and enjoyed food arts and crafts and music!


The prom serves as Delta Lake Bible Conference Center's biggest event of the year.


"It's an incredible night and an incredible experience to see them walk the red carpet, to see them dance," Executive Director Steve Clark said. "Most of them have never gone to a prom, so this is an opportunity for them to feel special and for them to be crowned kings and queens of the prom."


This is the organizations third annual event.
