Night to Shine
Highway Tabernacle will host Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs. On this 5th anniversary year, the event is expected to serve more than 100,000 people with special needs through 200,000 volunteers and 700 host churches in all 50 states and 20 countries around the world. Every guest of Night to Shine enters this complimentary event on a red carpet complete with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi. Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including limousine rides, professional photography, hair and makeup stations, corsages and boutonnieres, shoe shines, a catered dinner, karaoke room, a Respite Room for parents and caretakers, and, of course, a dance floor... all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned a king or queen of the prom.
Respite Nights are a once a month event that begins at 6:00 pm and ends at 8:30 pm.
What is a Respite Night?
A night where parents and caregivers can bring an individual with special needs and their siblings (through age 13) while volunteers who have background checks, care for them. We offer a variety of activities for everyone to enjoy. Pre-registration is required.
How does Respite Nights check-in work?
Enter through the glass double doors on the west side of the building (the entrance with the ramp). Since you will already have pre-registered, you may come to the check-in table and those who are attending will get their name tags and meet their Buddy for the night.
Will food or snacks be available?
There will be a variety of snacks available, such as cupcakes, cookies, crackers, pudding or Jello. Water or lemonade will also be available.
What is the schedule?
Upon arrival, guests will sign in and meet his or her Buddy for the evening. To start the night, there will be a time of praise and worship along with a message. After that, a variety of activities will be available. The siblings' group will check in upon arrival, meet the Sibling Group Leader, enjoy some activities and have a devotional time. At 8:15 pm both groups will gather to prepare for pick-up.
Will there be a nurse on-site?
