A Night to Remember

Mission Church is hosting the ninth annual A Night to Remember, a free prom for students with disabilities, to be held at the Ventura County Fairgrounds Friday, March 8th beginning at 6:30 p.m. Night to Remember was started in 2012 and after a brief pause during the Covid pandemic is finally back!

“There is nothing quite like this night and experience for both our guests and volunteers. It’s like a picture of heaven on earth,” explained Mike Hickerson, Lead Pastor at Mission Church. “When everyone is out on the dance floor together, we all recognize that we’re not that different from each other, and it just feels like something is right in the world.”

The night includes dresses and tuxedos, hairstyling, makeup and corsages or boutonnieres, limo rides and a walk down a red carpet cheered on by paparazzi. Each guest is accompanied by a student host from the community, given a formal photo, special food and treats and a night of dancing with a professional DJ.

“This event is not just a special night, but a night that has impacted our community all year long; we have watched our guests make friends with other students in their high schools and continue those friendships for years to come,” said Taylor Hunt, NTR’s Event Director. “It’s amazing what can happen when a community gathers to celebrate people who are often overlooked and under celebrated. We are so excited to bring Night to Remember back!”
