Dear PFA Family,
I would like to share with you an event that is near and dear to my heart. In 2015, Tim Tebow came up the idea to have churches host a prom for individuals with special needs, which he called "Night to Shine". The Home Church has had the privilege of hosting it here for four years, 2017-2020. Of course, the last two years have not been held in person because of Covid, but now it is time to get back together and celebrate our "Honored Guests." To get the flavor of what this event is like, please take a few minutes to wash the 2020 highlights video. https://vimeo.com/390520174 It will make you smile and may even bring a tear or two.
This event is now held in 750 venues in the USA, and in 31 different countries around the world.
This year, Night to Shine Silicon Valley is being held in Los Alto at Bridges Community Church on Friday, February 10. This is an awesome opportunity for the whole family to volunteer. Older kids and adults can be buddies for our guests, or serve on one of many teams, i.e. shoe shine, flowers , crowns & tiaras, guest bags, photography, decorations, medical and more. For families with younger kids, you can be the paparazzi along the red carpet and make our Honored Guests feel like rock stars. If you would like to volunteer, or you know a special needs adult who would be blessed by attending, go to the website at https://www.nighttoshinesiliconvalley.com. The guests will need to sign up soon, as the 250 spots fill up quickly. For all interested volunteers, there is the link to the volunteer application at both the top and the bottom of the page.
As one of the event leaders, I cannot thank you enough for volunteering. I guarantee you will come away receiving much more that you give. This is a major event that takes over 700 volunteers to make it a success . I would love to see Pioneer Family Academy show up in mass, to make a difference. Come join the party and be blessed.
