Night to Shine was an Evening to Remember!

Night to Shine was a stunning success thanks to our partners First Christian Church, GT Church, and the Tim Tebow Foundation! This unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs has been the highlight of the year for many people we serve, and this year’s event did not disappoint! With over 300 honored guests in attendance and nearly 500 volunteers, Night to Shine would not be possible without the incredible support our community displays.

“You can feel the excitement in the air,” President/CEO Amy Bliefnick shared on Friday, February 9th. “The people we serve look forward to this evening all year, and seeing the outpouring of love and support from this community makes it that much more special for them.”

We sincerely appreciate all of the volunteers and organizations that made this event possible. As always, the Monday after Night to Shine was filled with smiles, stories, and the question, when is the next Night to Shine?

“I am as thankful for this program as this gives my child anopportunity to learn teamwork, be with her peers and have fun. If not for this program, she would have been at home watching television and playing video games.”
