(Alexandria, MN) New Life Christian Church was excited to serve as one of more than 350 churches around the world who hosted a "Night to Shine". The night originates from the Tim Tebow Foundation. The locations in all 50 states and 10 countries around the world simultaneously held the unforgettable prom night experiences, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older.
Event coordinator in Alexandria, Marsha Taplin, says, "We had 136 honored guests, approximately 90 family members or caregiver's and 230 volunteers the night of the event. It was amazing!"
Every guest of Night to Shine entered this complimentary event on a red carpet complete with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi. Once inside, guests received the royal treatment, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, food, karaoke, prom favors for each honored guest and, of course, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.
The event in Alexandria took place on Friday, February 10th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
