On Feb. 8, Turning Point Worship Center will host the Night to Shine event, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. Night to Shine is hosted by an estimated 700 churches around the world simultaneously on Friday, Feb. 8. The foundation’s vision is to provide an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs ages 14 and older. Veterans United Foundation donated $2,000 to cover catering expenses and decorations for the special event. 

“We are excited to host a Night to Shine event for Wayne and surrounding counties,” said Pastor Justin Mitchell of Turning Point Worship Center. “Our community has rallied together to see Night to Shine for Wayne and surrounding counties by hundreds volunteering to serve and over $20,000 given toward this event. A big thank you to Veterans United Home Loans for partnering with us to help celebrate people with special needs.” 

The honored guests will receive VIP treatment that includes walking the red carpet, a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi, hair and makeup stations, shoe shining area, limousine rides, corsages, boutonnieres, catered dinner, prom favors and lots of dancing. This all leads up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom. 

“We are extremely honored to support Night to Shine,” said Shawn Workman, senior loan officer Veterans United Home Loans Hinesville. “This will be an unforgettable experience for its guests and we are thrilled to be even a small part of the night.” 

Turning Point Worship Center is at 1810 South Palm Street in Jesup.
