Emerge Church will host a Night to Shine 2023, a ‘prom night experience’ for people with special needs, at Warner on Saturday, February 11.

The event, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, will be hosted by churches around the world simultaneously.

It aims to celebrate people with special needs, ensuring they are valued and loved.

Every guest of Night to Shine enters the free event on a red carpet, with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi.

Once inside, they receive the royal treatment including hair and make-up stations, shoe shining areas, fancy car rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, party favours and a dance floor. The event culminates in each guest being crowned a king or queen.

“I’m so excited Night to Shine 2023 will be back in-person (after a COVID-19 hiatus),” Tim Tebow says.

“All around the world, individuals with special needs are going to be celebrated like they should be. We’ve been able to adapt over the last couple years but we can’t wait to be back together in person to cheer for every guest as they walk the red carpet, dance the night away with their friends, crown them as a king or queen of the prom and most importantly, tell every single one of them that their life has purpose and they are loved by us and the God of this universe.”

Night to Shine launched in 2015 with 44 host churches and 15,000 volunteers honouring more than 7000 kings and queens of the prom.

In February 2020, 721 host churches and 215,000 volunteers came together to celebrate 110,000 honoured guests with special needs.

During the past two years, Night to Shine innovated and endured through the pandemic with the first-ever virtual Night to Shine, celebrating thousands of honoured guests through unique adaptations including a complete virtual video experience and socially distanced Shine Thru drive-thru events.
