Area churches serving as hosts for Night to Shine prom Feb. 10 for those with special needs


Bonsack Baptist, Fincastle Baptist, North Roanoke Baptist and Thrasher Memorial United Methodist will serve as one of more than 350 churches around the world that will host Night to Shine simultaneously on Friday, Feb. 10.

Night to Shine is sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation and is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older.

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 guest and, of course, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when the king and queen are crowned.

As sponsor of Night to Shine, the Tim Tebow Foundation provides each host church with the official 2017 Night to Shine Planning Manual, the official Night to Shine Prom Kit, complete with decorations and gifts for the guests, 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.
