ARS and Tim Tebow Held Exclusive Press ConferenceAmerican Residential Services (ARS), a Memphis, Tenn. based, privately-held national provider of air conditioning, heating and plumbing services, invited celebrity, athlete and philanthropist Tim Tebow to a private press conference at 10 AM on Thursday, February 2, 2017, at the Hilton Memphis. Tebow discussed ARS, its affiliation with the Tim Tebow Foundation (TTF), and TTF’s marquee event, Night to Shine.
Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs, ages 14 and older, and it has become a worldwide movement. This year, more than 150,000 volunteers in more than 375 churches around the world will serve more than 75,000 honored guests simultaneously on one night: Friday, February 10, 2017. The 375 host churches represent all 50 states, 11 countries and 28 different denominations. In Memphis, the Night to Shine event is being held at Hope Church.
TTF announced that ARS/Rescue Rooter is its first-ever global corporate partner for Night to Shine, a relationship that will ensure future success and help pave the way for continued growth of the event. ARS has been a top supporter of the Tim Tebow Foundation since its inception and announced plans to partner with TTF for the next three years to continue serving people with special needs through Night to Shine. In addition to their financial support, ARS employees all throughout the nation will be serving as volunteers at various Night to Shine host churches. Due to this relationship between ARS and Tim Tebow and his Foundation, Tim will be participating in an exclusive press conference in Memphis, TN, the location of the ARS/Rescue Rooter corporate headquarters.
"The Tim Tebow Foundation is part of our ARS family, and we have contributed to TTF since its founding in 2010. We have been very proud to watch the Foundation grow and impact so many lives through Faith, Hope, and Love," said Dave Slott, ARS Co-CEO. Don Karnes, ARS Co-CEO, adds, “We are honored to be the official Global Partner for Night to Shine and am happy to announce that approximately 500 employees at ARS are also volunteering during the event across the country. Our entire ARS family is passionate and committed to supporting this unforgettable prom night event well into the future.”
The press conference was invitation-only, and the topics of discussion were ARS’ partnership with TTF and the Foundation’s outreach programs. “We are so grateful for the support of American Residential Services as our first global corporate partner of Night to Shine,” said Tim Tebow, founder of the Tim Tebow Foundation. “ARS has been an amazing partner since the inception of the foundation, and I continue to be humbled by their heart and passion for making a difference in the lives of others.”
