JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

An informational meeting is set for those interested in helping with an event that will be a first in Jonesboro.

The Barnabas Group and Fellowship Jonesboro Church were chosen to sponsor a Tim Tebow Night to Shine event in 2018.

According to the Tim Tebow Foundation website, it’s a prom-style event held for people with special needs, ages 14 and older.

The Barnabas Group, a ministry group, has already started planning and needs volunteers.

Anyone interested in helping should attend the informational meeting Friday, Aug. 25, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Fellowship Jonesboro.

Susan Smith said the meeting will give full details on what this event looks like and what kind of volunteers are needed.

Smith said it’s an honor for a church in the Jonesboro area to be chosen to host such an event.

Fellowship Jonesboro is located at 1801 Woodsprings Rd. in Jonesboro.
