Last year, we had the incredible pleasure to participate in “Night to Shine," a prom experience for people with special needs, ages 14 and up. Sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, this event is hosted by churches worldwide for one night each year.
Attendees receive glamorous treatment, including shoe shining, hair and make up, and provided boutonnières and corsages before the big dance! Tim Tebow describes the event perfectly: “The Night to Shine movement is more than just a prom; it is a night where people with special needs shine, and they are told that they matter, that they are important and that God has a plan for their life!"
With their slogan, “to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need," the Tim Tebow Foundation has been extremely successful in its mission. They also sponsor five other projects alongside Night to Shine, including W15H, Timmy's Playroom, and Orphan Care. Their focus is children, but they reach out to all ages to show people that they are wanted and cared for.
This year, we are excited to say that we are joining our local Night to Shine event again on February 10, 2017. We will be bringing the photo booth fun, and we can't wait to see more photos like the wonderful ones we were able to capture last year!
