Friday, February 9, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

The Catholic University of America - Father O'Connell Hall (HERITAGE HALL)
620 Michigan Avenue, NE Washington, Washington, DC 20064

Sponsored by: Tim Tebow Foundation


Redeemer City Church DC is thrilled to host Night to Shine for a third year. We continue to be humbled and amazed by the way God has grown the worldwide movement of Night to Shine sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. Volunteer opportunities are available to anyone who wishes to "Stand with Us" in love and support of celebrating people with special needs. We are in greatest need of Volunteers to serve as buddies to our honored guests to ensure a safe and enjoyable evening, and so no one feels excluded in any way.

Thank you, in advance for making Night to Shine so amazing and for giving so many of God's beloved children the opportunity to truly shine.

NIGHT TO SHINE is a night not only for guests to shine, but for churches to shine, for volunteers to shine, and most importantly for Christ to shine. Night To Shine is:

  • A worldwide movement sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation;
  • Changing Valentine's Day weekend from a celebration of love, to a celebration of God's love for people with special needs;
  • An unforgettable prom night experience;
  • A celebration of the value of life;
  • A night when all honorary guests are made kings and queens of the prom; and
  • Held simultaneously on one night around the world... FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 09, 2018

Upon registration, all volunteers should review the following:

1. The complete description of their role and understanding of the overall event;
2. Information on how best to interact with guest; and
3. Attend a mandatory orientation session (date/time TBD... we will provide further information regarding volunteer training via email).
4. Volunteer attire is semi-formal to formal dress wear.
5. All others volunteers should wear clothing suited to their specific role (scrubs for medical personnel, white shirt/black slacks for food services, etc.)


TRANSPORTATION ESCORTS - Assist honored guests as they arrive in their vehicles, and escort them to the red carpet area. Escorts will need to also be available as honored guests exit the event and return to their vehicles following the closing of the event.

SOCIAL MEDIA PHOTOGRAPHERS - Take high quality photos and short videos for social media platforms. Volunteers will follow content guidelines set by the Tim Tebow Foundation and use official #NighttoShine hashtags. Note: We may ask social media photographers to text their photos and videos to the Tim Tebow Foundation’s marketing team during the event for use in our socialmediathon.

RED CARPET PAPARAZZI - Take photographs of the honored guests and treat them like celebrities as they walk the red carpet area and make their grand entrance into the Night to Shine event.

BUDDY - Accompany the honor guests (assigned to you) throughout the evening, providing companionship and any assistance they may need during the event. You will be their dance partner and expected to sit with the honored guest during dinner and engage with them in casual conversation. We require volunteer buddies to be at least 16 years old. (OUR GREATEST NEED IS FOR BUDDIES - WE NEED 125+ PEOPLE)

SHOE SHINERS - Assist with the shoe shine area setup and provide shoe shining services to the honored guests. Chat with them while you pamper them and make them feel extra special.

TEAR DOWN TEAM - Take down decorations, tables, chairs, etc. and clean up the event space.
