Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, is celebrating its 5-year Anniversary on Friday, February 8!
February 8th, 2019, will mark the fifth anniversary of Night to Shine, the unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. In just four years, Night to Shine has truly become a worldwide movement and next month, more than 200,000 volunteers in more than 650 host churches will serve more than 100,000 honored guests simultaneously on one night, Friday, February 8, 2019 across all 50 states, 38 international locations in 23 countries and 35 different denominations!
“We have been so blown away by how God has continued to grow Night to Shine. I never imagined that Night to Shine would have grown this way when we started in 2014, but it is definitely a reminder that we serve a limitless God,” shared Tim Tebow, Founder and Chairman of the Tim Tebow Foundation. “As I reflect on how far Night to Shine has come, I am just so thankful for every host church, volunteer, sponsor and donor who has answered the call over the past five years.”
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 and, of course, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.
“The vision for Night to Shine is to love people with special needs, it’s to bring the church together and to ultimately change the world through the eyes of people with special needs. February 8th will truly be a night so many people will never forget as each guest is told how much they’re worth and that God loves them and that God has an amazing plan for their life,” shared Tim Tebow.
As sponsor of Night to Shine, the Tim Tebow Foundation provides each host church with the official 2019 Night to Shine Planning Manual, the official Night to Shine Prom Kit and personalized guidance and support from a Tim Tebow Foundation staff member. The foundation also is providing financial support to hundreds of churches needing assistance in hosting the event, and this year alone will contribute over $2 million in financial grants to ensure this night reaches as many people with special needs as possible. As Night to Shine’s official Global Corporate Partner, American Residential Services and its network of providers is a major factor in ensuring the foundation is able to continue sustaining the incredible growth of Night to Shine every year.
