Night to Shine is a worldwide prom event for teens and adults ages 14 and older with special needs, sponsored by The Tim Tebow Foundation. The goal is to provide an unforgettable prom night experience for our guests and to change Valentine’s Day weekend from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God’s love, for people with special needs.
Night to Shine provides a red-carpet entrance for guests complete with a friendly welcome from paparazzi, limousine rides, hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas and, of course, a dance floor.
During Night to Shine 2018, 537 churches representing 33 denominations and 175,000 volunteers in 49 states and 16 countries came together on 1 night to celebrate 90,000 honored guests in what has become not just a nationwide event, but a worldwide movement, celebrating people with special needs. Night to Shine 2019 promises to be the biggest event yet!
This is a night not only for guests to shine, but for churches to shine, for volunteers to shine, and most importantly, for Christ to shine.
The prom hosted by Liquid Church will be held on Friday, February 8th, from 6:00 – 9:00pm. We are hosting 3 proms in 3 counties across New Jersey: In Morris, Union and Somerset County.
Exact event location details are as follows:
- Liquid Church Broadcast Campus | 299 Webro Road, Parsippany
- Union County Mountainside Campus | 1180 Spruce Drive, Mountainside
- Bridgewater Marriott | 700 Commons Way, Bridgewater
Liquid has extended invitations to a number of groups, organizations, and individuals in our region who have special needs or serve those with special needs.

Each guest will receive the VIP treatment at Night to Shine from start to finish. This begins with the introduction of a personal “buddy,” who will attend to their every need throughout the event. Each guest will have the opportunity to get makeup and hair touch-ups from our very own glam squad at our Beauty Bar. They will walk the red carpet as friendly paparazzi snap pictures. Then, they can join others on the dance floor to celebrate! Finally, each guest will receive a crown or tiara because they are all kings and queens.
Our goal is to host 500 prom guests across our 3 locations – 300 in Morris County, 200 in Somerset County and 100 at our Union County Mountainside campus.
There are over 1,200 volunteer opportunities to serve at this event! Roles such as paparazzi, hair & make-up, shoe shine, parking attendants, and of course…guest buddy. Please note that volunteers must be High School age or older.
We’re hosting 3 prom locations in 2019, and we need YOU to truly make the evening a success! We hope that you’ll be able to serve with us. The only way to attend Night to Shine is via a volunteer role.
You can view volunteer roles and sign-up to serve online. Please register at www.LiquidChurch.com/NightToShine
The only requirement to serve at Night to Shine is a DESIRE to support our friends with special needs! No prior experience working as a buddy is required. We will provide the information you need, as well as any applicable training.
We consider it an honor to be selected by The Tim Tebow Foundation as a partner for Night to Shine – a worldwide movement. Liquid Church has a heart to serve those in our community with special needs, and The Tim Tebow Foundation shares that passion. We are excited to partner with them and to host this spectacular event. Together, we are changing Valentine’s Day weekend from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God’s love for people with special needs.
