Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God's love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. On February 7, 2020, Night to Shine celebrated its sixth anniversary! On one night, 721 churches from around the world came together to host Night to Shine for approximately 115,000 honored guests through the support of 215,000 volunteers.
Organized through the Tim Tebow Foundation, Night to Shine events, hosted by churches, create an unforgettable evening which celebrates the uniqueness of each individual guest.
