To the Editor:

At LowCountry Community Church, we believe everyone is made in the image of God and should be treated with dignity and celebrated. Those with special needs are often overlooked or need help participating in many special events, such as prom. Because of this, we are hosting Night to Shine 2023, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.

Night to Shine is a unique prom night experience celebrating people with special needs worldwide on Feb. 10. Every guest of Night to Shine enters this complimentary event on a red carpet, with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi. 

Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, prom favors, and a dance floor, all leading up to the moment of each guest crowned king or queen of the prom.

LowCountry Community Church is excited to be once again a part of this worldwide movement serving as a catalyst to change how cultures embrace people with special needs, ensuring they know they are valued and loved.

Night to Shine will start at 6 p.m. at LowCountry Community Church and is open to anyone with special needs ages 14 and up. Participants can learn more and sign up at

LowCountry Community Church is located at 801 Buckwalter Pkwy. in Bluffton.
