Storyside Church Night to Shine Prom

Storyside Church in Bellville will host Tim Tebo's Night to Shine Prom on Feb. 7 for people with special needs.

BELLVILLE -- Storyside Church announced Tuesday it will serve as one of nearly 655 churches around the world already registered to host Night to Shine 2020, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.

This event will be hosted through local churches across the globe simultaneously on Friday, Feb. 7. Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older.

Storyside, located at 541 State Rte 97 W, Bellville, is excited to be a part of this worldwide movement that is uniting churches of different denominations all over the world with the common goal of celebrating people with special needs.

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 hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, prom favors, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.

The goal is to create a truly unforgettable night for the guests. 

“It is awe-inspiring to see how God is using the Church globally to stand up and advocate for people with special needs. I truly believe that the world is coming together through Night to Shine to celebrate the love that God has for us," said Tim Tebow, founder of the Tim Tebow Foundation. "Every town, every village, every state, every country needs a Night to Shine for their special needs community – a chance to be a part of something significant and life-changing … and to be blessed in the process.” 

Night to Shine has experienced incredible growth, now in its sixth year of existence. The event launched in 2015 with 44 host churches and 15,000 volunteers honoring more than 7,000 kings and queens of the prom. This past February, 655 host churches and 200,000 volunteers came together to celebrate 100,000 honored guests with special needs.

Now in its sixth year, the Tim Tebow Foundation anticipates 800 churches to sign up to host the event taking place this coming February.
