“Night to Shine is a night where people get to understand their worth...that God loves them and that God has an amazing plan for their life,” Tim Tebow says.
Sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, more than 100,000 people with special needs celebrate an unforgettable prom night together at Night to Shine.
Locally, Delta Lake Bible Conference Center, 6420 Pillmore Drive, and Rome Alliance Church will once again serve as one of nearly 750 churches around the world that will host Night to Shine. This year’s event will be held on Friday, Feb. 7, at both Resurrection Life Church, 628 Floyd Ave., and at Mohawk Valley Community College’s Rome Campus, 1101 Floyd Ave. The dance will take place in the MVCC Plumley Building.
Night to Shine is a worldwide movement in all 50 states and 26 countries, and the numbers continue to grow.
“Night to Shine is a wonderful event and we’re so excited that we’ve been a part of it now for five years,” said Steve Clark, executive director of Lake Delta Bible Conference Center. “This is a night where the entire community gets involved, whether it’s by donating to help cover costs or materials, to sending volunteers, to spreading the word about all that takes place.”
Every guest of Night to Shine enters the 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 lead up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.
When Night to Shine launched in 2015, 44 host churches and 15,000 volunteers worked together to honor more than 7,000 kings and queens of the prom. In 2019, 655 host churches and 200,000 volunteers came together to celebrate 100,000 honored guests with special needs.
