TimTebow Foundation | Night to Shine Erie | Friday, February 9, 2018 - Night to Shine Volunteers


THIS EVENT REQUIRES AN APPLICATION COMPLETED; no online registration available.




On February 9, 2018, St. James Parish will host Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.  Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs.  As a part of this worldwide movement, more than 500 churches, representing 29 denominations, and 175,000 volunteers in 50 states and 15 countries will come together on one night to celebrate more than 90,000 honored guests 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 professional photography, hair and makeup stations, corsages and boutonnieres, shoe shines, a catered dinner, a Respite Room for parents and caretakers, and, of course, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned a king or queen of the prom.


In order to make this evening a huge success, we will need your help!   It will take over 200 volunteers coming together to provide a memorable evening for our honored guest.


Below is a listing of volunteer positions we will need to staff.   Since Night to Shine is a collaborative event through the Tim Tebow Foundation, all volunteers are asked to download and complete the attached Volunteer Application.  Please note if you ages 14-18, you will also need the "Volunteer Permission Slip" signed by a parent/guardian.
