Swedesboro, NJ -

Special-needs residents in Gloucester County were given a Night to Shine with a prom experience to cherish for years to come.

On Friday, February 9th, the Tim Tebow Foundation held its Night to Shine Prom event at more than 540 churches around the world including in South Jersey at the Crossbridge Community Church in Swedesboro.

The magical prom experience is made possible through the outpouring of support from the community and volunteers and gives people living with special needs a chance to shine brighter than usual.

At the end of the night, they are each given the royal treatment and crowned kings and queens of the prom.
