Hundreds of kids in Kern County experienced the night of their lives Friday, thanks to former University of Florida football star Tim Tebow. Over 200 teens with special needs who never had the chance to go to prom strutted their stuff on the red carpet at the Crossroads Christian Fellowship Church for the, "Night to Shine" event. 400 community members also volunteered their time to help transform the event into a reality. 16 year old Halle Hollowell was like most teens Friday, she spent the afternoon doing her hair and getting dressed in fancy clothes. “I will just have a good time,” Hollowell said. Along with many others in the community, Hollowell deals with her own challenges day in and day out. Living with cerebral palsy, her movement is hindered but not her positive spirit towards life. “When you fall down, you just have to keep trying and get back up again,” Hollowell said. Friday night she didn’t let anything get in the way of enjoying prom for the first time.
