Night to Shine - Special Needs

Greetings Friends!

Image result for night to shineWe are happy to share our church, Cuyahoga Valley Church, will be one of over 100 hosts in the US and other countries for Tim Tebow's "Night to Shine"!  This event is for teens (ages 12 and up) and adults with special needs.

**  This event is just as much for those with Special Needs as it is for their caregivers!

My oldest was excited to hear about the event and volunteered to serve, saying "she wants this to be the best night of their lives and wants to help make that happen!"  We love her heart!!!!


The Tim Tebow Foundation has a great passion for people with special needs, and in 2014 they launched “Night to Shine.” The vision was simple… work with churches around the country to provide an incredible prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs.
This past February, 44 churches and 15,000 volunteers came together on one night, celebrating 7,000 honored guests with special needs. This unforgettable prom night experience changed Valentine’s Day weekend from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God’s love, people with special needs and the value of life. This year we will continue expanding this ministry into a worldwide movement that allows people with special needs to shine, churches to shine, volunteers to shine, and most importantly, Christ to shine.

What will the guests enjoy????

A CATERED CELEBRATION --- BEAUTY STATION --- BUDDIES --- CROWN/TIARA --- DRESSES/SUITS --- KARAOKE and DANCING with/DJ --- FLOWERS --- LIMOS and RED CARPET!!! 
The church will be decorated from the parking lot to downstairs and everything in between!!

Also, if you are looking for a Nutcracker performance to go and see, both kiddos will be performing with the Moscow Ballet's Nutcracker on Monday, December 14th at 7PM.  The show will be held at Music Hall in Cleveland.  It is a beautiful facility and the Russians are some of the most amazing ballerinas in the world.  I am always stunned by their beautiful costumes, the variation of the Two Doves and the Arabian Dancers are astonishing!!!  The Russians glide across the floor....this really is a MUST see if you love the Nutcracker!!!
