Tim Tebow’s Valentine’s Day Prom for Over 7,000 Special Needs Teens

hi-res-8237174eaca3fa4dba28a58a3bb03750_crop_northValentine’s Day is usually all about receiving chocolates, flowers, or spending a romantic evening with that special person in your life. But for Tim Tebow, NFL football star, Valentine’s Day is all about helping others.


The Tim Tebow Foundation, which he founded 5 years ago, will be hosting a “Night to Shine” event that will provide a Valentine’s Day prom to over 7,000 special needs teenagers in 50 different cities across 26 states. On February 13, 2015, thousands of special needs teens will be able to experience a red-carpet entrance, limo rides, professional hair styling and make-up, and photography at participating churches where the proms will be held.


“Our goal is to make every individual feel special and loved that night, as if they’re the only ones there,” Debbie Fasano, who is tasked with organizing the event in Illinois, told Fox News.

There will even be a ceremony where prom-goers will receive a crown or tiara to remember the special evening by.


“We are so excited to be able to create this opportunity for thousands of people around the country with special needs,” Tebow said in a statement concerning this event.


Tebow’s foundation is known for taking on projects such as building playrooms in children’s hospitals, facilitating adoptions of special needs children by providing grants to the adopting families, and building a hospital in the Philippines.


“This event perfectly fits our mission to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need,” said Tebow during a press release.
