Do guests need chaperones?
Most guests will be dropped off by a caretaker or chaperone who will use his or her judgment whether to stay with the guest, enjoy a night out or stay upstairs where you can enjoy a relaxing evening watching the Night To Shine, a movie, massages, dinner, and more. We strongly encourage chaperones to drop off their guest and allow us to assign a buddy/escort for the evening, unless you believe it's essential to accompany your guest into the prom.

What activities can be expected at Night to Shine?
Guests will be assigned to his/her buddy upon registration, get crowned as nobility, and be escorted down the red carpet welcome filled with photographers. After getting his/her professional photo taken in front of the Tebow Foundation back drop, each guest will be treated to a formal, gluten-free dinner with live music playing in the background. Upon completion of dinner, the event will open up to all activities which will include a live DJ with dancing, a beauty room for makeup touch-ups and shoeshines, karaoke, gluten-free snacks, and a quiet room for anyone needing a break. We will have security and medical personnel onsite throughout the event
