What to expect at Night to Shine

A worldwide, unforgettable prom night experience that is changing Valentine’s Day weekend from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God’s love for people with special needs. Guests will be honored with a friendly paparazzi red carpet, crowns and tiaras, corsages and boutonnieres, limo rides, games, dancing, food, photos and VIP treatment. The vision is to provide a night for our guests to shine and most importantly, for Christ’s love to Shine.
Created in 2010, this foundation and all of their outreach initiatives were primarily created to show God’s love to children around the
world. To celebrate the foundation’s 5-year anniversary, they sponsored Night To Shine proms in 50 different cities across the country. Learn more about the foundation and its five global outreach initiatives at http://www.timtebowfoundation.org/ including the Tebow CURE hospital for children in the Philippines, fulfilling the dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses through the W15H program, Timmy’s Playrooms in children’s hospitals around the world, care and Adoption Aid grants through the Orphan Care program, and service to others through Team Tebow and Team Tebow Kids.

Our chaperones are called “buddies.” Each guest will be accompanied by a buddy throughout the evening, providing companionship and any general assistance needed during the event. A guest may bring their own buddy or First Baptist Church Woodstock will provide one. All buddies 18 years old and up will have passed a background check and have attended mandatory training at First Baptist. Parents or caregivers may accompany guests but are encouraged to enjoy a night of respite or join our Caregiver Event instead if at all feasible. We realize circumstances may prevent this from being possible.
Night to Shine is for you too! In order to HONOR the incredible parents/caregivers of our guests, you are invited to a special event happening on campus that night designed specifically for you. There will be food, entertainment, door prizes and more. Or you may choose to enjoy a time of respite off campus instead. This is YOUR night as well, so don't feel obligated to attend the Hospitality Event.
Guests are invited to “dress their best” but renting formal wear is not necessary. This year we are partnering with Fairy Tale Endings (http://www.fairytaleendings.org) owned by Lindsay Haas to provide gowns for ladies who would like one if the size is available. If a guy wants to wear a tux, the Tim Tebow Foundation has made arrangements with PromGuy.com, an online tuxedo rental company to provide discounted rates. See https://promguy.com for details.
First Baptist Church Woodstock will have local law enforcement and church security personnel on campus at all times.
First Baptist Church Woodstock will have numerous medical personnel and emergency vehicles on-sight during the entire event.
