The event is hosted by the Tim Tebow Foundation.

For her, the evening wasn't so much about the crown each guest receives or evening the dancing. "I am a princess in a fairy tale", said Faith. This event includes everything that a typical prom has, including the limo ride, dinner and dancing. That also included those who volunteered.
