Hundreds Of Proms In The Works For Those With Special Needs
Planning is underway for hundreds of proms specifically for people with disabilities that are set to take place around the world on a single day.
Organizers with the Tim Tebow Foundation said they already have 500 churches signed up to host proms just before Valentine’s Day.
That’s up from 375 churches and other venues that participated earlier this year.

Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow began the annual “Night to Shine” events in 2014. Tebow’s foundation provides host churches a planning manual, decorations and gifts for each attendee. Last year, the group said it spent over $3.5 million on the events.
Each prom features a red carpet entrance with friendly paparazzi, hair and makeup stations, shoe shining, limousine rides, dancing and karaoke. Everyone partaking in the free events gets crowned king or queen of the prom.
“We want Night to Shine in every town, in every church, in every state and every country,” Tebow said.
Night to Shine will take place on Feb. 9, 2018.
