City First Church in Rockford to host prom night for people with disabilities

ROCKFORD (WREX) — A Rockford church will be hosting a prom night for people with disabilties in February!

City First Church announced on Friday the Night to Shine 2020 event is sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation!

The Night to Shine is hosted through local churches across the globe simultaneously and is an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs ages 14 and older.

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.

As sponsor of Night to Shine, the Tim Tebow Foundation will provide each host church with the official 2020 Night to Shine Planning Manual, personalized guidance and support from a Tim Tebow Foundation staff member and access to free and discounted resources that will assist them in creating an unforgettable night for their guests. The foundation also has committed nearly $3.5 million in financial support to hundreds of churches needing assistance in hosting the event.
