Night to Shine will be held on Friday, February 7, 2020. In order to provide the best experience for our guests, we have CLOSED REGISTRATION and are no longer adding guests to our waiting list. If you had not yet had the opportunity to register, we hope you will be able to join us in 2021!


Buddy: Volunteer who is at least 16 years of age and is willing to spend the evening celebrating alongside a guest and assisting the guest as needed.

About Night to Shine

The Tim Tebow Foundation has a great passion for people with special needs, and in 2014 we launched Night to Shine with a simple vision… work with churches around the country to provide an incredible prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs.

God’s vision was bigger… In just four short years, Night to Shine, through hundreds of churches and thousands of volunteers, has become a worldwide movement that is changing Valentine’s Day from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God’s love by honoring people with special needs and the value of life. It’s a night not only for our guests to shine, but for churches to shine, for volunteers to shine, and most importantly, for Christ to shine.

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 stations, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a karaoke room, a catered dinner, prom favors for each honored guest, a Respite Room for parents and caretakers, and, of course, dancing! The highlight of the night comes when every one of the Night to Shine guests is crowned a king or queen of the prom!

Special Thanks
