o When the event opens at 6pm EST or any time you navigate to the link after 6pm EST, you will be asked to answer a simple question about who is viewing the event (honored guest, volunteer, group home, etc.). Once you make your selection and click “Enter Event”, you will be on the official event page and can begin watching the Official Night to Shine Virtual Experience video!

able to text your photos, videos and stories to the foundation if you would like to. We know that many

What is Night to Shine?

clear logo

Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older. On one night, the Friday before Valentine’s Day, churches from around the world come together to host Night to Shine in their communities for thousands of people with special needs. This past February, 721 churches from all 50 states and 34 countries came together with 215,000 volunteers to celebrate 110,000 honored guests with special needs.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Night to Shine 2021 will be a virtual experience and we are excited to serve and celebrate as many people with special needs as possible in this new and unique way!

Why Night to Shine?

Night to Shine celebrates the uniqueness of each individual guest by providing an unforgettable night where they are welcomed, valued and loved!

“When I was at one of the proms last year, a beautifully dressed queen of the prom was hugging me when the girl’s mom leaned over and whispered with tears in her eyes, ‘My daughter will never get married and she will never have children, but tonight you made her feel like a princess!’”

– Tim Tebow

Sharing God's Love

Night to Shine shares the joy that is found in God’s love for each and every person.

“From the moments the guests of honor reached the front door to the smiles on their faces as they were greeted and walked down the red carpet, it was obvious that the joy of the Lord was in each of their hearts.”

– Peggy Hyland, Volunteer for Christ’s Church at Mason in Ohio
