LARGO — Mission City Church recently announced that it will serve as one of more than 500 churches around the world that will host Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, simultaneously on Friday.
Night to Shine is a prom night experience for people with special needs, ages 14 and older. The event will take place in all 50 states and 16 countries around the world. Mission City Church, 801 Seminole Blvd., is the only location that will hold the event in Pinellas County.
Every guest enters the free event on a red carpet. Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a dinner, karaoke, prom favors, a respite room for parents and caretakers and a dance floor. It all leads up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.
"Night to Shine is my favorite night of the year," Tim Tebow said in a news release. "It’s also a favorite night for thousands and thousands of kings and queens all over the world that we crown at the end of this prom."
