The 'Glam Squads' were out in full force for Louisa's 'A Night to Shine 2018' this weekend. The Louisa United Methodist Church, in conjunction with the Tim Tebow Foundation held their annual prom for special needs Individuals joining over 500 churches participating this year around the globe.

The church was the scene of red carpets, limos and paparazzi all for this very special cause.

Organizer Mitch Castle said, "A little over two years ago I got word that the Tim Tebow Foundation had approved the church to host the event. I had no idea the impact it would have on so many."

Castle, the Youth director at LUMC said literally hundreds of volunteers, parents, caregivers, and Kings and Queens participated.

"We have been blessed beyond our wildest dreams for three hours every year," Castle said. "To be able to host such and amazing event is an honor. If I had to jump in an ice cold lake every day just to be able to have this event I would."

Castle was referring to the "polar plunge" he and two church members took into Yatesville lake last month in below zero weather to help raise over $3,000 for the event.

"I explained it like this to someone who asked what the night was. 'I imagine heaven to be an absolutely perfect place. No worries, sorrows, frowns and nothing sad. For 3 hours on the Friday before Valentine's Day , Heaven is on top of a hill in Louisa, Ky.'. It really is the BEST NIGHT EVER."
