Guests - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is there a dress code?
For guests, prom dresses and tuxedos are appropriate.

Males Guests may wear tuxedo, or, slacks (no jeans!) with dress shirt and tie.

Although this is a formal event, we would never want the cost of a tuxedo rental or the purchase of a prom dress to be something that would deter an honored guest from attending Night to Shine. Please contact us if a scholarship is needed.

Is there a cost for anything?
No. Thanks to the generosity of the Tim Tebow Foundation, individuals and businesses who have sponsored each guest, the prom is free.
 
 
The night of the event, should the guests come dressed in their tuxedo or dress?
Yes, please come already dressed for the occasion.  We will take care of hair and make-up.
 
 
May I donate a dress or tux for an honored guest to use?
At this time we are not able to accept dress or tuxedo donations. If you would like to donate a dress we recommend looking into Caitlin’s Closet.
 
 
Do I need to find a date or does everyone go stag?
No dates please. This is a fun-filled night where each Honored Guest will be partnered with a student who will act as their Host for the night.  We will partner everyone onsite as you check-in. Our student hosts look forward to being a friend to our honored guests and treating them like a star for the night!
  
 
What time should the guests arrive?
Check-in starts at 6pm. The “Prom Experience” goes from 6pm - 9pm. The first 1 –1 1/2 hrs. is getting paired up with your host and going through the ‘stations’ (hair, make-up, flowers, photos, limos). The last 1 – 1 1/2 hrs. is the Red Carpet, dance and hors d’oeuvres.
  
 
What is provided to eat?
Hors d’oeuvres will be provided. There are also water stations throughout the event.
 
  
What time will “A Night to Shine” be over?
We will end at 9 pm.
 
  
Can parents, families, and / or para-professionals attend the evening with the guests?
We welcome family, friends, and para-professionals to be a part of the evening by joining our “paparazzi” to cheer on our guests as they make their way down the red carpet.  We do, however, want to allow the students to engage with their peers during the prom. Family members are welcome to observe from our Family Viewing Room, but we ask that we leave the event for the Honored Guests and Student Hosts. If a guest requires constant monitoring, exceptions will be made.  We want the experience to be fun and safe for everyone.
  
 
What will family, friends, and para-professionals do in the Family Viewing Room?
Parents and guardians are invited to enjoy dessert, meet other parents and watch the whole prom on the big screen. You can feel as if you’re a part of the event, while allowing your student to experience it on their own.
