I am a parent or caretaker for a guest at Night to Shine. What are my options?
We are so excited to have your loved one as an honored guest at Night to Shine. As a parent or caretaker, we recommend you take advantage of our Respite Room we have prepared for the evening. All parents and caretakers are eligible to attend this event which takes place alongside Night to Shine where you will be able to relax, be pampered, enjoy a catered dinner and live entertainment, and watch your child or guest attend Night to Shine via our live feed. Space is limited, so please indicate your intention to attend and the number of individuals that will be enjoying the Respite Room when you register your guest.
I am a parent or caretaker for a guest at Night to Shine. Can I attend as their Buddy?
We really encourage parents and caretakers to enjoy the Respite Room we’ve prepared. We can ensure that your child/guest is in excellent hands! Not only are they paired with a Buddy, but there are 20 highly trained special needs assistants in the room along with EMS at all times.
If, however, you feel your child/guest must be accompanied by their caretaker, then please let us know when registering them as a guest; the guest will still be assigned a Buddy volunteer to accompany them through the evening.
