Night to Shine Volunteers

Night to Shine Volunteers

I want to start off by giving A HUGE heartfelt thank you to each one of you who have expressed interest in serving at what will truly be an incredible evening for our honored guests!!  I pray each one of you will be blessed and touched in amazing ways for opening your hearts and giving of your time for this event!!

If you are a FIRST TIME VOLUNTEER for Morning Star Fellowship Quakertown's event, you will need to complete the necessary background check found at the link below. Once you have submitted that form, you will be contacted when the check is complete and, at that point, you may sign up for a specific team using the sign-up genius form.


RETURNING VOLUNTEERS, your background checks are on file and there is no need to submit another form. You may move forward with selecting your specific team. 

Two important pieces of information you will want to note:

1. There will be one mandatory meeting for all volunteers. Volunteers MUST commit to attending one of the following meetings: Sunday, January 20th after the 2nd church service (1 PM) or Monday evening, January 21st at 7 PM. The meetings will be held in the main sanctuary at Morning Star Fellowship.

2. All volunteers (unless specified in the below description) are expected to "dress up" for this event- no jeans, t-shirts or casual wear. Certainly, you are encouraged to dress in formal attire but your "Sunday best" would be acceptable as well. We want our guests to feel special and by dressing up, hopefully, it will show them we think they are awesome and go above and beyond to celebrate with them!!

Below you will find a detailed description of each team and then you will be asked to sign up for a specific team and time slot. Each team has a specified number of slots, so if your first preference is filled, please choose another area. Also, you may sign up for more than one team- if the times do not overlap. We have lots of teams to fill!! It's that easy!!

SET-UP TEAM  (casual wear is acceptable)

Arrive at the designated time and execute event set-up, including table/chairs and decor.

FOOD PREP TEAM (casual wear is acceptable)

Greet early arrival guests prior to making their red carpet entrance. Ask if they have hair/makeup appointment and direct them to the hair/make up entrance.


Help guests as they arrive for, depart and return from their limo ride by opening doors and escorting them to and from the limo.


Greet guests, take their coats, label them and hang them. As guests leave, ask for their coat tag and retrieve their coats.


Officially crown each guest with a crown or tiara as they step onto the red carpet. Make sure to ask each guest if they are "ok" with flashes or loud cheering as they walk the red carpet. If not, a signal will be given for no flash and quiet cheering.


Assist guests as they make their way down the red carpet, manage the flow of traffic and cheer them on to make them feel welcomed.


Offer to take photographs of guests with the guests’/caregivers’ cameras and phones (as well as their own) and treat participants like honored guests and celebrities. Post photos to social media with the appropriate hashtags. 


Accompany and assist assigned guest throughout the evening, providing companionship and any assistance they may need during the event. Sit with their guest during dinner and engage with them in conversation. We recommend volunteer buddies be at least 16 years old.

Check in guests with hair/make up appointments. Escort them from the separate entrance to the hair and makeup room.


Welcome each guest to a salon station for hair and makeup or to a seat for a shoe shine. Chat with them while you pamper them and make them feel special. PROFESSIONAL hair and makeup experience required!!!!

FOOD SERVICE TEAM (black and white attire such as a black skirt or pants/white shirt)

Encourage guests to participate in the photo booth by choosing fun props. Help to maintain a fun atmosphere.


Monitor the dance floor and the perimeter to make sure there are no “wallflowers.” Invite them to dance and engage with them.
