Night to Shine 2019

On February 8, 2019 Rising Above Ministries hosted Night to Shine in partnership with Cookeville Life Church. The Cookeville event was one of over 500 happening on the same evening around the world. The Tim Tebow Foundation sponsors these unforgettable prom nights for individuals with special needs to attend and be honored as the kings and queens they truly are.


The evening began with attendees arriving and being welcomed by having their hair styled, their shoes shined, and the opportunity to choose a corsage or boutonnière.


The prom doors opened and every single guest entered by walking the red carpet and being cheered for by an ensemble of paparazzi.


What follows the red carpet entrance? An evening full of dancing, a delicious dinner, limo rides, karaoke, and so many smiles, culminating in each and every guest being crowned kings and queens of the prom.

We cannot say enough good things about the 200+ volunteers that served at this year’s event. From serving food and drinks, to decorating, to joining the party as peer buddies, to tearing down after the night was over - thank you! We could not execute events of this magnitude without our amazing army of volunteers who give of their time and talents so faithfully.

What a night to remember! We are already looking forward to next year and seeing more beautiful smiling faces ready for their Night to Shine.
