A Night to Shine offers a prom night experience for our neighbors and friends with special needs. Anyone over 14 is welcome. 

"This, tonight, is a special night for everybody with disabilities," one guest, Jeff, said. 

"It's fun to do this, and it's fun to be with people and friends and family," another Jeff said. 

They were all dropped off at Proctor High School in limos and greeted by adoring high school students. Every detail is thought of, from corsages to crowns to professional photos. 

And no need is too difficult to accommodate, whether it's dietary, medical or sensory. A Night to Shine is all about inclusivity. 

"I'm going to do this again next year," Jenny said, already making plans. 

It's hosted every year at Proctor High School in partnership with the Tim Tebow Foundation. Families are asked to register their guests ahead of time so they can make sure everyone's needs are met.
