Almost 100 children living with disabilities celebrated the 6th edition of the “Night to Shine” on Friday 7th February 2020, at the Sanctuary Praise Church. The evening was full of entertainment, joy and celebration of talent. Robert Biugler, of World Hope International, said this day is to honour people with disabilities… kings and queens. “People with disabilities have many different talents and we’re here to showcase those and celebrate their gifts and abilities.” Among the featured performers were the world-famous Walpoleans from One Family People, a local NGO working to empower people with disabilities. Their energy, enthusiasm and talents as performers and singers inspired dancing and loud applause. The afternoon was communicated by a team of sign language interpreters as performers sang, spoke and danced. Blind singers, deaf dancers and musicians showcased their talents and pleased the audience. Biugler said the program was sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation and the “Night to Shine” celebration encompasses over 90,000 people with special needs around the world. Tebow said the “Night to Shine” is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love for people with special needs. The event is open to anyone with physical or cognitive special needs older than 14-years.
