WAKE FOREST — Hope Lutheran Church has been selected as one of 50 host sites for the upcoming nationwide Night to Shine prom for people with special needs.
The event will happen in 50 different cities across the country simultaneously Friday, Feb. 13 from 6 to 9 p.m.
The foundation’s executive director, Erik Dellenback, shares the vision behind Night to Shine: “The Tim Tebow Foundation has a heart for people with special needs. To celebrate our five-year anniversary, we wanted to create a brighter day for people with special needs,” Dellenback said.
“Everyone should have the opportunity to experience a prom where they feel loved and welcomed, and we pray this event will positively impact the lives of thousands of people across the country,” he added.
With a red carpet entrance and friendly paparazzi welcome, guests will be greeted by their very own buddy who will serve as their host for the evening.
Guests will receive VIP treatment including flowers, hair and makeup, professional photography, food, dancing, games and more. The guests will also participate in a crowning ceremony where they will each receive a crown or tiara.
Every guest will also get to take home Night to Shine prom favors.
