Spring Bling

A One-of-a-Kind Fair to Celebrate Teens/Adults with Special Needs

Spring Bling

A One-of-a-Kind Fair to Celebrate Teens and Adults with Special Needs​

Saturday, April 24, 2021

With the pandemic upon us, we are unable to safely hold Night to Shine as we have in previous years. However, we were determined to still have an event to celebrate teens/adults with special needs in our community. Out of this desire, Spring Bling was born. This event aims to show the special needs community just how much we love and care for them, just as Christ loves and cares for them.


CHBC will be offering both an outdoor and indoor option in an effort to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible attending. We will also be taking all necessary precautions to keep you safe.


Have questions? Contact Ashley Gyori (Special Needs Director).


Are you interested in attending as a guest?


Are you interested in volunteering?

In years past, we've had over 250+ volunteers join us from our church family and around the community to help us pull off Night to Shine (Sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation). It was an incredible and rewarding evening of fun and great memories.


Likewise, as we kickoff this new event designed to minister to teens/adults with special needs in our community, we're excited to find a role that fits your gifts as we minister to the special needs community in Chapel Hill/Durham.

Volunteer roles for spring bling:

Please read the following role descriptions carefully. When you register to volunteer with us you will be asked to indicate your top three role preferences. Time commitments are detailed below descriptions.


  • Setup Team: Our set up team will come in prior to guests arrival to make sure all decorations and activities have been properly set up. Tasks will vary and will be given upon arrival. 
  • Check-In Team: Our check-in team will be responsible for checking in both volunteers as they arrive and our guests. There will be an optional check-in team set up day on April 23 for this team to come in and get acclimated with the process. (This optional setup day is based on feedback from previous years). 
  • Parking Team: Parking team will remain outdoors to direct the flow of traffic as well as assuring that all guests arriving have been pre-registered.
  • Health Team: Our health team remains onsight in case of medical emergencies. Please note you will not be asked to administer any medicine or help with toileting. We ask that you do have a health degree prior to serving in this role (MD, RN, PA, or other health professionals only).
  • Security Team: Our security team will remain on site to ensure that all protocols are being followed. Please note there will also be a uniformed officer on site in case of any threats or true emergencies. 
  • Floater Team: The role of our floater team is to help fill gaps that arrive the day of the event. Every year we inevitably have volunteers who end up being sick the day of the event or we have an activity that needs a few extra hands. Our floaters will be assigned roles the morning of the event based on where we still need help. 
  • Activity Crew: The activity crew will be responsible for setting up our various activity stations and games and leading our guests through these activities.
  • Respite Team: Our respite team will be responsible for overseeing our caregiver zone and ensuring our caregivers are loved and cared for during the event. 
  • Sanitation Team: Our sanitation team will come in near guest dismissal times and be responsible for ensuring all aspects of the event have been properly sanitized so we can safely welcome our next group of guests. 
  • Kitchen Team: Our kitchen team will be responsible for overseeing all food needs throughout the event. NOTE: You will not be responsible for the actual cooking and preparation of food.
  • Teardown Team: Our teardown team will come in after our guests have left, to make sure all decorations and activities have been properly taken down. Tasks will vary and will be given upon arrival. 
  • Guides (Indoor Only): Our guides will be stationed throughout the church building to help direct guests and their caregivers to the rooms hosting various activities. You should already be knowledgeable about our building layout to serve in this role. 
  • Door Greeters (Indoor Only): Our door greeters will be stationed in front of each room with activities to keep count of how many people are inside the room at once. Door greeters will be responsible for ensuring we are maintaining appropriate capacities in-line with current government mandates. 
  • Table Head (Outdoor Only): Our table heads will be stationed at each outdoor table pod of guests. They will be responsible for helping the activity crew with activities and assisting the guests at their table as needed. 

Volunteer time commitments:

Due to the all day nature of this event and our staggered guest arrival, we have broken volunteer roles into four groups (A-D). Each group will be present during a set of guest arrivals as detailed below. Please take note that group A is outdoor only and the remainder of the groups will be working indoors.

FAQ for Volunteers

How old do I have to be to volunteer?

All volunteers must be in at least 6th grade to serve with us at this event. 

Can I volunteer with a friend/family member?

We love it when families sign up to serve together! However, since we count on many volunteers and many guests, we cannot guarantee that you will be placed in the same role or in the same area together. But please don’t let that stop you! You can still have fun working the event together! 

I’ve never worked with anyone with special needs before, can I still volunteer?

YES!!! We believe this is a great way to get introduced to working with the special needs community. We will also go over some special needs etiquette and tips for working with the special needs community in our training. 

When will I know what role I will be serving in?

We have found over the years of running similar events to this, that it works out best to have you indicate your role preference and have us place you where you are most needed. With that in mind, we do not begin assigning roles until about one week before our training dates. You will get a notification before the date of our first training and we will have lists of who is serving where present at our trainings. If you did not get a follow up email from us after completing your registration then we do not have it, please contact us.

What if I can no longer serve on that date?

If you find out you can no longer serve once you have signed up please let us know as soon as possible so we can fill your role. 

Can I sign up for more than one role?

Our outdoor and indoor events will be taking place on a different time frame (outdoor in the morning to early afternoon and indoor in the early afternoon to evening). If you would like to volunteer for both an outdoor role and an indoor role we invite you to do so and enjoy serving with us all day! 

What if I have been to Night to Shine in the past, do I still have to attend another training?

Yes. Our training changes every year in order to convey new information and cover how to best serve at the event. 

When will training be?

Our trainings are currently scheduled for the following dates: 


  1. April 17, 2021 at 10:00 am 
  2. April 18, 2021 at 2:00 pm 
  3. April 21, 2021 at 7:00 pm 


At this time we are anticipating holding our trainings in the church sanctuary to allow for an in-person training where we can appropriately social distance. However, this is subject to change. The dates and times will not change. If we are unable to safely meet in person for a training we will meet over zoom at these same dates/times. You will receive a reminder email and further information regarding trainings as we approach the event.
