DICKSON CITY — Parker Hill Community Church was alive with music, activity and excitement on Friday evening, Feb. 12, as approximately 100 honored guests and more than three times that number in volunteers filled the city campus for an evening they are unlikely to forget. At Night to Shine, a prom for people with special needs, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, every guest was crowned a king or queen of the prom and told of God’s love for them. The free event was complete with a red carpet entrance, limo rides, shoe shining, hair and makeup styling, a buffet dinner and plenty of dancing.
