Tim Tebow Foundation Night to Shine at Local High School
December 5, 2016, West St. Paul, Minnesota
Night to Shine is an incredible prom night experience for people with special needs, ages 14 and older. Hosted by St. Croix Lutheran Grades 6-12 in West St. Paul and generously sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, Night to Shine provides a red carpet experience with friendly paparazzi, hair and makeup stations, limousine rides, karaoke, and of course, a dance floor!
Held simultaneously at over 350 locations around the world on February 10, 2017, Night to Shine is a celebration of people with special needs and the value of life. The St. Croix Lutheran Grades 6-12, West St. Paul location is one of only four hosts in Minnesota and the only high school.

“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 first two years of Night to Shine, our prayer is that this event will continue to 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 the official 2017 Night to Shine Planning Manual, the official Night to Shine Prom Kit, complete with decorations and gifts for the guests, and personalized guidance and support from a Tim Tebow Foundation staff member. The foundation also is providing financial support to hundreds of churches needing assistance in hosting the event.
During Night to Shine 2015, 44 host churches and 15,000 volunteers worked together to honor more than 7,000 kings and queens of the prom. Last February, Night to Shine 2016 saw 450% growth, reaching 32,000 honored guests in 201 host churches with 75,000 volunteers. Night to Shine 2017 promises to be the biggest event yet, with more than 350 churches already signed up to participate all around the world.
