2018 Special Needs Prom

All Saints Catholic Church in Manassas is one of more than 500 churches around the world hosting ‘2018 Night to Shine,’ sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.

The prom at 6-9 p.m. on Feb. 8 is for people 14 and older with special needs. More than 105 guests and their parents are expected to attend, according to a news release. Also, over 150 volunteers are helping, including as volunteer buddies who are paired with each guest. 

Guests will receive makeovers at hair and makeup stations, shoe shining stations, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, prom favors for each guest and dancing. The highlight of the night will be when each guest is crowned a king or queen of the prom.

‘2018 Night to Shine,’ sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, was started five years ago by the former NFL quarterback. Now a worldwide movement, more than 175,000 volunteers in more than 540 churches around the world will serve more than 90,000 guests on Feb. 9, according to the foundation website.  

All Saints Catholic Church became involved when one of its parishioners, Danielle Smith, heard about the program applied to the Tim Tebow Foundation to become a host church.
