Bon Air Baptist Church @ The Village was selected as one of 50 host sites for the upcoming nationwide Night to Shine prom for people with special needs. This event will happen in 50 different cities across the country simultaneously on Friday, February 13, 2015 from 6-9 p.m.

NightToShineTebow-300x175The foundation’s executive director, Erik Dellenback, shares the vision behind Night to Shine, “The Tim Tebow Foundation has a heart for people with special needs and to celebrate our 5-year anniversary we wanted to create a brighter day for people with special needs. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience a prom where they feel loved and welcomed and we pray this event will positively impact the lives of thousands of people across the country.”

With a red carpet entrance and friendly paparazzi welcome, guests will be greeted by their very own buddy who will serve as their host for the evening. Guests will receive VIP treatment including flowers, hair and makeup, professional photography, food, dancing, games and more!

The guests will also participate in a crowning ceremony where they will each receive a crown or tiara. In addition to being crowned a prom king or queen, each guest will get to take home Night to Shine prom favors.

Earlier this week, campus pastor Jake Maxwell was invited to share about the Night to Shine prom on the noon broadcast of WRIC-8.
