Night to Shine, hosted by churches all over the world on February 10th every year, is a prom-like event for teenagers with special needs.
Tim Tebow, a famous athlete formerly of the University of Florida and the Denver Broncos and currently playing minor league baseball, came up with the idea for Night to Shine in 2010, to help spread kindness, love, and joy to the people who need it most. Night to Shine is an event to help people with special needs by giving them church support and a once-in-a-lifetime prom experience that they may not have had the opportunity to experience.
The First Baptist Church hosted Night to Shine this year in Madison. Many Bob Jones students attended. A few teachers at Bob Jones told sophomore Sarah Waldrop about it, and she was excited to go.
Sarah said, “I always loved helping with special needs kids, so I was very eager to help out. This event is important because it makes kids who have disabilities feel important and that they are worthy of life, love, and to be a child of god.”
Overall, the event went well and provided a great experience not just for the kids with special needs but also for the students of Bob Jones.
