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, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, prom favors for each honored guest, a Respite Room for parents and caretakers, and, of course, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.

This year Night to Shine Tri-Valley hosted over 450 people with special needs, 600 parents/caretakers, and over 850 volunteers at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton!

Night to Shine Tri-Valley are hosts to one of the largest proms to participate in this amazing collaborative event, founded by the Tim Tebow Foundation. We believe in the opportunity the foundation provides and want to push the boundaries of whats possible every year to truly make this event unforgettable.

“I am blown away by how we are seeing God use the Church to step into this space as an advocate for people with special needs.  It’s not about my foundation or the churches themselves, but about communities coming together to love and celebrate people with differences.

Every town, every village, every state, every country needs a Night to Shine for their special needs community – a chance to be a part of something significant and life-changing…and to be blessed in the process,”
— Tim Tebow, founder of the Tim Tebow Foundation. 

As sponsor of Night to Shine, the Tim Tebow Foundation provides each host church with the official 2019 Night to Shine Planning Manual, the official Night to Shine Prom Kit, complete with decorations and gifts for the guests, and personalized guidance and support from a Tim Tebow Foundation staff member. The foundation also has committed millions of dollars in financial support to hundreds of churches needing assistance in hosting the event.

Night to Shine Tri-Valley has been well established and no longer receives financial support from the foundation.

Each year we rely on the generosity of our community members to make this night happen. We are blow away every year at the support we receive and could not be more grateful.

Watch this video below to see what an impact you make. This incredible night would not be possible without our sponsors, donors and volunteers!


The Tim Tebow Foundation has a great passion for people with special needs

To celebrate the foundation's 5-year anniversary, they launched an initiative to create Night To Shine, an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God's love, for people with special needs at host churches across the country.

When Night to Shine launched in 2015, 44 host churches and 15,000 volunteers worked together to honor more than 7,000 kings and queens of the prom. This past February, 537 host churches and 175,000 volunteers came together to celebrate 90,000 honored guests with special needs.  

Now in its fifth anniversary year, the Tim Tebow Foundation is seeing new churches sign up continuously and the event hosted over 700 locations in 2019! This worldwide movement is already set to take place next year in all 50 states and 15 countries around the world…and the numbers continue to grow!


We do our best to capture every moment from the night. We thank our many photographers who were all over the prom from the setup to the arrival, red carpet to crowning, karaoke to dance party!

There are many categories going back over the years so there are plenty to view!
