On Feb. 7, Special Ed students from Bloomington South were able to experience an unforgettable night of dance and glamour at Bloomington’s annual Night to Shine. Centered around giving special needs individuals access to an inclusive and elegant prom night experience, the event was held at Sherwood Oaks Christian Church last Friday night.

Attendees, including some from South’s own Best Buddies, were able to enjoy complimentary limousine rides, a catered dinner, hair and make-up stations, dancing and karaoke, and even a crown for each guest at the event. This incredibly special night is sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation to honor those with special needs, certainly giving them a night to remember.
