Night to Shine is a prom for people over age 14 with special needs. The event debuted in Central Pennsylvania in February at Calvary Harvest Fields, a church in Boalsburg.

For many of the participants it was the first time they'd been to a prom. Among the most popular experiences was a chance for participants and their guests to grab silly things and head to the photo booth to make video portraits.

The Central Pennsylvania Night to Shine was sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. More than 500 churches hosted the event across the country on Feb. 8, 2018. Planners at Calvary Harvest Church say they are planning to host the event again on Feb. 8, 2019.
