Night To Shine, Sponsored By The Time Tebow Foundation, Is Coming To Newport, RI on February 12, 2016

Crosspoint Church announced today that they will serve as one of the more than 100 churches around the world that will host Night to Shine sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation simultaneously on Friday, February 12, 2016.

What’sUpNewp was the first to report this story back on November 5, 2015 – CrossPoint Church Selected By Tim Tebow Foundation to Host its “Night To Shine”

“Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 16 and older. This worldwide movement is already set to take place this year in 41 states across the nation and 7 countries around the world…and the numbers continue to grow!”, CrossPoint Church wrote in an e-mail to What’sUpNewp.

Every guest of Night to Shine will enter their prom on a red carpet complete with welcoming friendly paparazzi. Once inside guests will receive VIP treatment including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining stations, corsages and boutonnieres, a karaoke room and of course, dancing! The highlight of the night will come when every one of the Night to Shine guests is crowned as a king or queen of the prom.

“We are honored to be able to work with so many churches across the county and around the world to impact the lives of people with special needs,” said Erik Dellenback, executive director of the Tim Tebow Foundation. “After such an amazing response to the inaugural event held in 44 locations earlier this year, our prayer is that this event will one day change the face of Valentine’s Day weekend from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God’s love for people with special needs.”

As sponsor of Night to Shine, the Tim Tebow Foundation will provide each host church with a detailed instruction manual, a Prom Kit complete with decorations and gifts for the guests, financial support and individualized staff guidance.

During Night to Shine 2015, 44 hosts churches and 15,000 volunteers worked together to honor the more than 7,000 kings and queens of the prom. This year, the host churches are expected to see more than 20,000 people with special needs at prom all at one time around the world.
