Night to Shine, Tim Tebow Foundation
Beavercreek Nazarene to Host Night to Shine Prom for People with Special Needs
Sponsored by Tim Tebow Foundation
Beavercreek, OH December 4th,2017 – Beavercreek Nazarene announced today that they will serve as one of more than 450 churches around the world that will host Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, simultaneously on Friday, February 9, 2018. Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older. This worldwide movement is already set to take place next year in all 50 states and 15 countries around the world…and the numbers continue to grow!
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 areas, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, prom favors for each honored guest, a Respite Room for parents and caretakers, and, of course, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.
Night to Shine is an incredible night. Lights…music…limos…dancing…and best of all, each honored guest being crowned a king or queen of the prom! I love what one pastor shared with me, ‘We love this event because it smells like Jesus,’” said Erik Dellenback, executive director of the Tim Tebow Foundation. “We continue to be amazed by how God has grown this event into a worldwide movement, celebrating people with special needs. Though the statistics are incredible, this is not about the numbers. Above everything else, our goal is to share God’s love with people with special needs while giving Him all the glory.”
As sponsor of Night to Shine, the Tim Tebow Foundation will provide each host church with the official 2018 Night to Shine Planning Manual, the official Night to Shine Prom Kit, complete with decorations and gifts for the guests, and personalized guidance and support from a Tim Tebow Foundation staff member. The foundation also has committed over $3.5 million in financial support to hundreds of churches needing assistance in hosting the event.
When Night to Shine launched in 2015, 44 host churches and 15,000 volunteers worked together to honor more than 7,000 kings and queens of the prom. This past February, 375 host churches and 150,000 volunteers came together to celebrate 75,000 honored guests with special needs. Churches are signing up every day for Night to Shine 2018 and the event is expected to take place in over 500 locations in all 50 states and on 6 continents this coming February.

We value creating a culture of belonging, and you are welcome here regardless of how different, or messy, your beliefs or background may be.
The Tim Tebow Foundation exists to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. That mission is being fulfilled every day through the foundation’s seven areas of outreach, including W15H, Timmy’s Playrooms, Orphan Care, Adoption Aid, the Tebow CURE Hospital, Team Tebow and Night to Shine.

On February 9, 2018, Beavercreek Nazarene will host Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.

As you can imagine, we want our Night to Shine to be the best prom in the world, so we are contacting you in hopes that you will consider helping us make that possible through any contributions you can provide. We are anticipating 250 prom king/queen(s) to attend, each with at least one care taker. Every prom king/queen will have their own personal buddy assigned to them for the duration of the event. In order to make this happen we will need 350 volunteers, food and drinks for over 1,000 individuals, as well as other contributions from the community.
Our current needs to make this night possible are:
- Men’s/Ladies Formal wear/accessories
- Food/Drink Donors
Thank you, in advance, for helping us celebrate and love people with special needs!
