Prom gives special needs youths, adults night to shine

"We just left our first Night to Shine here in Haiti", Tebow said in a video posted to Instagram.

Friday's event was the inaugural Night to Shine in the Northland and it was open to anyone older than 14 who has special needs. They will arrive in limousines to a paparazzi on the red carpet to get their makeup and hair done before the big night begins.

At the end of the night, everyone gets crowned prom king and queen. He asked her about her church in Nebraska and if a Night to Shine event could be held there, so Fuelberth put Tebow in touch with Austin.

The event is a Tim Tebow Foundation Night to Shine, one of almost 400 being held in 50 states and 12 countries. Members of the church along with many, many volunteers helped to make the night shine bright.

But he's not upset, he said, crediting an economy that remained strong compared to many other areas of the province and country. He's also concerned about what the growth trends mean for the "inner suburbs" - places such as Etobicoke and Scarborough.

The food was sponsored by Chick-fil-A.

The planning for Night to Shine took about a year, said Mollie Haag, one of the local event organizers.

Morgan Harris was a volunteer from Cornerstone, and said three main churches and ministries were the driving force behind the event, but people also come from all over to help. "They are very organized, and they kind of have everything all set up", she said.

"They feel like little princesses", she said of her daughter and other women at the party. "I just knew people would enjoy it". "They have to start over in life and make new friends and this is an opportunity for them to do that".

Former Denver Bronco Tim Tebow is making sure a group of teenagers and adults with special needs have a night they will never forget. "They provide a manual that just kind of says some ideas and things that they've done with other organizations or churches".

Night to Shine is an event that celebrates the uniqueness of each guest by providing an unforgettable night where they are welcome, valued and loved, according to the Night to Shine website. County Commissioner Ed Wolfe, whose office covered the cost of the venue, even got in on the dancing. It blows my mind that we have so many young people who are so ready and willing to serve others, no matter how busy or insane their lives are.

Organizers said they hope they are able to bring the event back again next year.

"I just enjoyed riding in the limo", added Granatino.
