Many of you know that Shandon hosted our first Night to Shine prom this past Friday, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. We were one of 537 churches worldwide to host this phenomenal event for teens and adults with special needs—and it was nothing short of spectacular!
Shandon member Amanda Hawkins served as Event Coordinator, and did a stellar job of managing logistics for 79 honored guests, more than 300 volunteers, and 18 local sponsors and vendors. Here’s a special note from Amanda to everyone who played a part:
I want to extend a HUGE thank you for all of the hard work you put into Night to Shine this year! Friday was extremely successful. We have received several emails and responses from families of our guests letting us know how thankful they are and how above and beyond they felt we went. This could not have been accomplished without you. We appreciate each and every one of you for the efforts you put forth. THANK YOU—YOU ROCK! We hope you will join us again next year!
Shandon’s Night to Shine event received national recognition this week through a quote submitted by a parent who attended with their daughter. Check out these features published by CBS Sports and the Tim Tebow Foundation.
God showed up in a big way on Friday and blessed all who attended with a beautiful, magical night that we’ll never forget. We can’t wait for next year!
