Tim Tebow has had many shining nights on the football field, but now the former quarterback has flipped the script, and is giving others a Night to Shine.
Last year, the Tim Tebow Foundation sponsored 44 proms in 26 states during Valentine’s Day weekend for people with special needs.
Those who attended wore tuxedos and dresses, while Tebow provided the flowers, hair and makeup stylists, DJ’s, professional photographers, food, and crowns and tiaras in order to make everyone a king and queen for the night.
The 28-year-old SEC Network analyst attended proms in two locations, and even shined shoes for prom goers.
Tebow is back at this year, and has improved his “game.” More than 200 proms in 48 states and 8 different countries will be held, giving those with special needs the same opportunity.
Plus, they will get to walk a red carpet while have their pictures taken by “paparazzi.”
“We hope that the movement of Night to Shine not only transforms the way we think about Valentine’s Day, but also launches or enhances ongoing special needs ministries within churches around the world,” adds Erik Dellenback, the executive director of the Tim Tebow Foundation. ‘And provides a place where our honored guests can be celebrated and loved throughout the year.” (PEOPLE)
Here are some highlights from last year’s event.
Tebow is a gunslinger, maybe not on the field, but when it comes to tossing around love and acceptance.
