Ten Special Olympics Pennsylvania - Philadelphia athletes attended a Night to Shine, in partnership with the Tim Tebow Foundation, on February 12, 2016. Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs ages 16 and older.
Our athletes looked amazing as they entered the prom on a red carpet complete with welcoming and friendly "paparazzi.” Once inside, our athletes received the VIP treatment including mini hair and makeup stations, shoe shining stations, corsages and boutonnieres, a karaoke room, and of course, dinner and dancing! The highlight of the night came when every one of the Night to Shine guests were crowned as a king or queen of the prom.
Athletes in attendance included: Teddy Angerman, Ian Aviso, Jackie Lutts, Heather Lutts, Stephen McGarry, Emmett Abdo, James Shelton, Stanley Dluzniewski, Kelly Dluzniewski, and Kristie Walls.
