Frequently Asked Questions
What is Night to Shine at St. Croix Lutheran Academy?
Sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older. Night to Shine started in 2015 with 44 locations across the world. St. Croix Lutheran Academy began serving as a Night to Shine host in 2017. In 2020, this worldwide movement took place simultaneously at more than 720 locations in 50 states across the nation and 34 countries around the world…and the numbers continue to grow!
Due to COVID-19, Night to Shine 2022 will be broken into two parts - a SHINE THRU PARADE and VIRTUAL EVENT. the SHINE THRU PARADE is new to us this year! The Tim Tebow Foundation offered a VIRTUAL EVENT in 2021 and the honored guests loved it! We saw stars such as Carrie Underwood, Charles Barkley, Chip & Joanna Gaines, Alex Rodriguez, Bethany Hamilton and more! While we are disappointed to miss spending the evening with you in person at St. Croix Lutheran Academy, we look forward to seeing your faces at the SHINE THRU PARADE where we can celebrate YOU! In addition to the Shine Thru Parade, we think each guest will love the virtual format as they get to connect with Tim Tebow and other special guests! We see how the guests light up when they hear from Tim Tebow each year, and this year the guests will be able to connect with Tim Tebow at the VIRTUAL EVENT!
Even though it is a VIRTUAL EVENT, every guest of Night to Shine will experience many of the favorite features of the live event - music, dancing, special guests, and the highlight of the night will come when every one of the Night to Shine guests is crowned as a king or queen of the prom virtually.
When is Night to Shine?
The Night to Shine SHINE THRU PARADE and VIRTUAL EVENT will take place on February 11, 2022. The SHINE THRU PARADE will be open from 4-7 pm. The VIRTUAL EVENT will be released @ 6 pm, but you may watch it whenever it works for you!
Where is the Night to Shine SHINE THRU PARADE?
