Formal Wear Donations Needed For Tim Tebow Foundation Night To Shine Prom

Rev. Phyllis Parthemer and Abigail Parthemer embrace Ashley Parthemer as she arrives at the Night to Shine Prom.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Tim Tebow Foundation and the Through the Roof ministry for those with special needs at the United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches will host a Night to Shine Prom on Friday, Feb. 8.

More than 100 local teens and adults with special needs will attend the prom, and many are in need of formal wear for this exciting event. For some, this will be their first time ever attending a prom or other formal event.

Evening wear for women, especially in larger sizes, is needed, as well as tuxedos or suitcoats and dress shirts and pants for the men. Accessories such as evening bags and dress shoes are also welcome.

Donations of items in good repair are being accepted Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches, located just off of I-95 and Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., at 900 Brandywine Road in West Palm Beach. To make other drop-off arrangements of donations, call the church at (561) 687-5411.

Although no fee is charged to those attending the prom, it costs the church approximately $75 per attendee to present the event. Those wishing to make a cash contribution to help underwrite these costs can donate at or by mailing a check made out to United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches (UMCPB) Through the Roof Ministry, 900 Brandywine Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33409.
