2023 Night To Shine – Back Live In-Person

The Tim Tebow Foundation has decided we can return to normal this year with Guests and Volunteers live on the dance floor!!

Once again Southminster Church will be a host for the “Night To Shine” event in Gastonia, NC. There will be music, dancing, karaoke, red carpet, paparazzi, and much more.

As a Volunteer, you serve a very important role to help make this a special night for all of our Guests. Whether helping to setup, staff the event itself, or being a “Buddy”, every role is critical to ensuring our Guests experience. If you are considering being a volunteer, here are some of the opportunities for you to choose from:

This is a one-on-one experience with a Guest. You will be paired with a registered Guest and from the moment they step off the Red Carpet until they leave for the night, you are their guide for all they do. (Super Buddies are available to you should you need assistance)

Volunteers arrive earlier than our Guests to get things setup, so if you are available to help with Volunteer Checkin, be sure your schedule will allow you to be on campus even earlier to get our other volunteers to their positions. Once volunteers are cleared, you can participate in another role as well.

Guest Registration starts early and continues thru the evening but usually is over before 7pm. This position helps the Guest get their name badge and gets them to the Red Carpet for their arrival at the event. You can also help with other activities (other than a Buddy) once you are done at registration.

Volunteers help to run the different activities, whether it’s positioning a Guest at the Step and Repeat Photo stop, stuffing gift bags, preparing or serving food or being a member of our Paparazzi cheering and taking pictures.

*Reserved Positions
Traffic control, Security, and Vendors are listed on the volunteer form but please only select these if you are told to by a committee member or team leader. We have more stringent requirements for these positions and they are typically organized by the team lead.
