Tim Tebow Foundation hosting 'Night to Shine' at Mission City Church

Friday, February 9, marks the Night to Shine, a prom night experience for people with special needs who are 14 and older.

The Tim Tebow Foundation is throwing it's Fourth Annual Night to Shine at Grace United Methodist Church at Fort Clarke in Gainesville.

It's perhaps the biggest simultaneous prom night for people with special needs. "This is the only opportunity for a lot of them to ever go to a prom".

Jana Moon and her mom look forward to the prom every year. "What about dancing?" "No I like sports", Chris said.

Friends, family, and volunteers cheered them on as they entered the building to attend the prom event.

While prom season is still a few months away, Friday was prom night for some wonderful people that call the Tri-Cities home. "Getting dressed up and just having fun".

"I am a very good dancer", he said.

At the end of night, it's all about making these kings and queens smile.

"It's unbelievable. I am having so much fun here", Mollie McEvily said. The foundation also has committed more than $3.5 million in financial support to hundreds of churches needing assistance in hosting the event.

Now, roughly 550 churches worldwide celebrate A Night to Shine. "Sometimes they're overlooked, sometimes they don't have that kind of attention. and we want them to feel like they're the most precious person in God's sight".

This was just one of 540 Night to Shine events taking place around the world Friday.

"One Direction one thing, that's his favorite song", Stauber said.
