Tim Tebow Just Made This the Best Prom Season Ever

Over the weekend, former NFL player Tim Tebow’s foundation helped kids with special needs all over the country feel like royalty.

The Tim Tebow Foundation celebrated its five-year anniversary by throwing a prom-like night for people with special needs in up to 50 cities across the country, according to the Tim Tebow Foundation website. The event, called “Night to Shine” took place on February 13.

Night to Shine featured glamorous red carpet entrances, hair and makeup stations and even limousine rides.

Tebow himself made a surprise appearance on the big night at the First Christian Church of Kernersville, North Carolina, according to Fox News. He was there to meet and greet guests and to join in as around 200 volunteers were transforming the church into a ballroom. He even helped out by shining the shoes of some lucky party-goers.

Tonight we’re trying to make them feel like kings and queens,” Tebow told Fox, “but in God’s eyes, every moment of their life they’re kings and queens.”
