Village Learning Center attendees celebrated by dancing the night away.

On Feb. 8, the Village at Stoney Glen, Kingwood’s premier state-licensed assisted-living, respite and transitional-living provider serving the special needs community, attended Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine Prom hosted by Woodridge Baptist Church.

It was an amazing evening of food, fun and celebration. As soon as guests arrived, they were greeted by warm, smiling faces and escorted into the church. Once inside, everyone received their wristbands, a buddy for the night, a boutonniere or corsage, and a crown or tiara before their names were announced while walking down the red carpet, complete with cheering fans.

Dinner was wonderful: baked chicken breast, pasta salad, and breadsticks were served with sugar cookies for dessert. Guests watched a joyful video greeting from Tebow before being ushered into the beautifully decorated ballroom for the dance. The gentlemen enjoyed the shoe shine station and the ladies got a kick out of having their makeup and hair touched up by volunteers.

Everyone had a blast spending the evening with old friends and making new ones, and the church said that they plan on holding the event again next year. The Village at Stoney Glen will definitely be in attendance!

Residents of Stoney Glen in Kingwood were among those who attended a special ‘prom’ with nearly 100 individuals with developmental disabilities, their buddies and volunteers.

Former professional quarterback/current outfielder Tebow started this event five years ago through his Tim Tebow Foundation and this year it was celebrated in 655 churches in 24 countries, with more than 200,000 volunteers and 100,000 honored guests.

“Night to Shine is special because there are so many things in our society that tear people apart and this night is a night that brings people together. Because every single person is important … we are all loved, we are all created in God’s image, and there is a reason and a purpose for each our lives,” Tebow said.
