Our SCPS Upper School basketball cheerleaders and students from our international program led by Charita Hardy and Debbie Fairbanks served to share Christ’s love through the Tim Tebow Foundation. This special foundation led by the SEC and NFL quarterback, Tim Tebow, sponsors a worldwide prom called, “Night to Shine,” for individuals with special needs. Serving as the red carpet paparazzi and prom dates for these precious people for whom the event was created, our SCPS students were joined by young men from Benedictine to complete the dance-filled evening. Limo rides, red carpet entrance, seated dinner and dancing the night away made for an evening that the guests and our students won’t soon forget.
This year’s event, which was simultaneously hosted by 200 churches in 48 states and seven countries, provided a night to remember for more than 32,000 people with special needs. Tebow surprised the prom crowd at St. Malachy’s Roman Catholic Church in New York City.
“I am so thankful for the 200 host churches and more than 70,000 volunteers that showed God’s love by celebrating people with special needs and are turning Night to Shine into a worldwide movement,” said Tebow. “The Night to Shine movement is more than just a prom; it is a night where people with special needs shine and they are told that they matter, that they are important and that God has a plan for their life!”
