PHOTOS: Night to Shine in Chilliwack a huge success

It was a full prom experience for 75 teens, adults with special needs at Chilliwack’s Night to Shine

They walked down the red carpet, posed for official portraits and danced the night away at Night to Shine on Friday evening at First Avenue Christian Assembly.

The event, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, was a full prom experience for teens and adults with special needs. Night to Shine took place around the world on the same night at more than 650 churches.

Chilliwack was one of two locations in B.C. to host the event. Here, 75 guests were welcomed and treated like kings and queens by a slew of 200 volunteers.
