The Tim Tebow Foundation is sponsoring its annual Night to Shine prom for people with special needs at First Baptist Atlanta on Friday, Feb. 8, from 6:30-8:30 pm.
The event will also be held at more than 500 churches in all 50 states and 16 countries. A total of 28 Georgia churches will host the event.
Every guest of Night to Shine enters this complimentary event on a red carpet complete with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi.
Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, prom favors for each honored guest, a Respite Room for parents and caretakers, and a dance floor, all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.
“Night to Shine is my favorite night of the year,” said former college and NFL quarterback and minor league baseball player Tim Tebow. “It’s also a favorite night for thousands and thousands of kings and queens all over the world that we crown at the end of this prom. It’s a time in which people can work together and be a part of something significant and life-changing, and be blessed in the process.”
When Night to Shine launched in 2015, 44 host churches and 15,000 volunteers worked to honor more than 7,000 kings and queens of the prom. This past February, 375 host churches and 150,000 volunteers hosted 75,000 guests with special needs.
