A Night To Shine

 
St. Croix Lutheran gave hundreds a reason to shine at a unique prom held Friday, February 10, 2017. The school hosted Night to Shine for people with special needs, thanks to a grant from the Tim Tebow Foundation. Night to Shine took place simultaneously, in all 375 locations, 50 states across the nation and 11 countries around the world!
 
From the moment guests arrive, they were treated like royalty receiving VIP treatment. The ladies were ushered through to hair and makeup. The guys enjoyed a shoe shine.
 
Every moment, every detail and every memory made was special. There were corsages and boutonnieres, karaoke, limo rides, and of course, dancing! Every guest of Night to Shine experienced a red carpet welcome complete with friendly paparazzi. The highlight of the night – every Night to Shine guest was crowned as a king or queen of the prom.
 
 
All of the 200 honored quests were paired with a buddy for the night. Most buddies were student volunteers from St. Croix Lutheran.
 
 
Nearly 400 volunteers contributed to Night to Shine and 75 of those were from Crown of Life, ranging from the 8th grade through retirement.
 


Youth Reach Out to Community

 
Crown of Life Teens take the opportunity to volunteer at a neighborhood food shelf on their day off from school.
 
Mr. Fenske took five teens to Neighbors Inc. in early December to increase community outreach opportunities in Crown of Life’s youth program. In three hours the kids sorted, dated and shelved an overwhelming amount of donations that came in during the November food drive.
 
Not knowing what they were getting into they were pleasantly surprised and all said that it was fun and they would do it again. It’s always fun to volunteer with friends!
 
Thank you for your outstanding work! Can’t wait to see what you do next.
