A Night to Shine with Tim Tebow

A local church is teaming up with the Tim Tebow Foundation to put on one ballin’ party for special needs adults right here in our community.

CBS 12’s Rosie Woods met with Katie Nunez, one of the prom queens to be, on Thursday.

“I’ve been to prom two years this will be my third one,” Nunez said. “I am so excited for prom tonight!”

Katie is one of at least 140 special needs adults living in Palm Beach County who is attending ‘A Night to Shine’ this year. An event that almost didn’t happen.

One of the organizers, Phyllis Parthemer with Through the Roof Ministry, told us they did not have enough dress donations as of mid January. But thanks to the generosity of the community, this group of special needs adults will spend the night dancing their hearts out.

“We have to have had two hundred dresses donated. It has to have been and I did have to say to people thank you so much for being willing to but we don’t have anymore room for them!”

Parthemer also told us there will be paparazzi lining the red carpet and a limo driving around the building for anyone who wants to go for a spin.
