A guest makes his way down the red carpet at a past

Friday evening South Ridge Church in Fairmont was one of the many across the world that hosted the "Night to Shine" event.

The guys were able to get their shoes shined while the girls could get help with their makeup and hair.

A Night to Shine is a prom event for people with special needs in the community.

Model High senior Jacob Barrett said he volunteered again because his first exposure to the event "was a really awesome experience".

It's called "Night to Shine" and when Abigail Tyree walked down the red carpet.

Thousands of people around the world are coming together for one objective: to honor young adults with special needs and disabilities. "This is just about them as a person". Tebow is a truly phenomenal person who has impacted so many lives in so many touching ways through his charitable works.

His Tim Tebow CURE Hospital in the Philippines also serves children with special needs by providing them with necessary medical care. It all leads up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom. "They can dance the night away".

"I came here to have a glorious time at the dance", said Sammi Huffman of Fruitport.

"I am a very good dancer", he said.

Organizers say they will apply again soon to be able to host another Night to Shine next year.

Of course, the screams were loud when Tim Tebow himself came on the television screen and told the crowd, "The God of this universe loves you and has a special plan for you". "It's about being a part of one team, God's team".
