Night to Shine event was over-the-top wonderful
A week ago I had the time of my life at the Night to Shine. The event was hosted by First Baptist Church in Salisbury. I felt so special. I was all dressed up in my formal outfit. I planned for weeks what to wear. I must say I really looked good. When I arrived I received a terra and a corsage. The Trolley took be straight to the red carpet. How wonderful it was to walk the red carpet with an escort. That was a wonderful feeling that I never had before.
The event was over the top with music, food and entertainment. Elvis even came and sang to me! I even had a chance to try karaoke. So many of my friends also attended. What a grand time I had that night. I am still talking about the wonderful evening.
Thank you to the Tim Tebow Foundation, First Baptist Church and all the people who worked to make this night one I will never forget.
I recently received awesome pictures from my escort for the evening. Thank you for the photos. The pictures are extra special.
I will remember and talk about this day for a very long time.
