Night to Shine creates unforgettable prom experience for kids with special needs
BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Friday night marked a special night for kids with special needs all around the world as they had their own Night to Shine.
The event, sponsored by the Tim Tebow foundation, invites kids ages 14 and up to their own prom night experience, including crowning a king and queen.
"It's a special needs event for ages 14, and there's no maximum age," James Mummert with Beavercreek Church of the Nazarene said. "I have a couple in their 80's who are coming to a dance for the first time ever."
About 90,000 people around the world celebrated the completely free event.
