A southern Alberta church will serve as one of many churches around the world registered to host Night to Shine 2020, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.
The event offers an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs ages 14 and older. The annual event unites churches of different denominations in a common goal of celebrating people with special needs and giving them a “Night to Shine.” It will take place Friday, Feb. 7 at churches across the globe simultaneously, including MyVictory Church in Lethbridge and Taber.
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, prom favours and a dance.
Night to Shine, now in its sixth year, has experienced incredible growth since launching in 2015 with 44 events and 15,000 volunteers honouring more than 7,000 kings and queens of the prom. Last February, 655 hosts and 200,000 volunteers came together to celebrate 100,000 honoured guests with special needs.
The Tim Tebow Foundation anticipates 800 hosts to sign up to hold the event. For additional information on the Night to Shine hosted by MyVictory Church in Lethbridge and Taber, visit http://www.myvictory.ca.
