Sanibel Community Church announced today that it has been selected as a returning host for Night to Shine 2020, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. The event will take place at local churches, representing 35 denominations, in 50 states and across the globe, simultaneously on Friday, Feb. 7, 2020.
Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. SCC is excited to be a part of this worldwide movement that God is using as a catalyst to change how culture embraces people with special needs and to rally the church worldwide to stand up for those who are differently-abled.
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, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom. Tim Tebow delivers a personal video message during the evening to all in attendance.
In 2019, 200,000 guests attended Night to Shine in 24 countries and 100,000 volunteers made the evening possible, which was a historic first on Sanibel Island.
