Night to Shine community service

For the second year, Harvey’s Student Ambassadors volunteered their time at Night To Shine, a memorable evening for everyone involved. Night To Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation and launched in 2014, is an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs ages 14 and older. 

On Feb. 9, hosted by Grace Community Church at Grace Farms, New Canaan, Connecticut, the Harvey students and parents volunteered in several different capacities to make the evening very special for all their guests. Guests were greeted and paired with a peer buddy, and then went on to enjoy the VIP treatment and limo ride, walk the red carpet, and enjoy a delicious dinner with dancing to the upbeat jams from the infamous DJ Joe. The evening concluded with a special message from Tim Tebow as each guest is crowned King or Queen of the prom.

Harvey seventh grader Ally Zimmerman and her mom, Jessica, were greeters while eighth grader Zak Boujid and his mom, Hayate, operated the coat check. Jake Acosta ‘27 and his mom also helped out with coat check and were part of the breakdown crew.

Harvey students who attended as buddies for the evening, ensuring their guests had a fun-filled, memorable evening, were: 

Seniors Grace Alpern, Iliana Hellinger, and Jen Mena; juniors Ryan Byrne, Brady Campos, Benji Cutler, Cade Gilligan, Spencer Hanson, and Jonah Kass; sophomores Micah Berni, Patrick Cuneo, Caleigh Flink, Talya Langer, Maeve Lazzaro, Lila Silpe, Evan Vasile, and Mollie Weisberger; ninth graders Zoey Berman, Mallon Gilligan, Rylan Gilligan, and Stella Ruiz-Vicente; and eighth grader Krisi Friedman.

Harvey parent Jodi Weisberger, volunteered as a “Buddy Assistant.”

Special thanks to Harvey Assistant Director of Admissions and Harvey parent Jessica Vicente for organizing this extraordinary opportunity for everyone involved to shine!
