“Night to Shine is more than the limo rides, the red carpets, the fancy dresses, and the shiny shoes,” Tebow said of the event. “It’s special because our guests realize, some for the first time, that they’re worth it. They are told they’re special and that they’re loved. And at the end of the night, when each and every one of them is crowned king or queen of the prom, they go home knowing that God loves them and has a special, unique, and purposeful plan for their life.”
