Current Project: Night to Shine Columbus, Nebraska
Night to Shine is a prom for people with Special needs ages 14 and up. As you can imagine, we want our Night to Shine to be the best prom in the world. It takes a lot of time, talent and money to make that possible. The Tim Tebow Foundation estimates that it takes approximately $100 dollars per participate. This includes such things as flowers, suit rental, hair/salon supplies, makeup supplies, tiaras, favors, decorations, limousine services, and any other supplies or services needed to make this the most memorable night the individuals have ever experienced. We appreciate any donation you can offer, as they will go directly towards making this night truly memorable for the amazing community of people with special needs in Columbus.
2019 was the first year for this event in Columbus and it was a HUGE success!! We can't wait to do it again in 2020. In 2019 we had 150 participants attend this special night. Over 400 volunteers and thousands of dollars in donations of time, talent, goods & money helped make this a memorable evening! This event is 100% NO COST to the participants! Help us make our second Night to Shine even better than the first!
