This important evening will celebrate the impact of empowering young people and parents in our community. Together we will continue to build resilient kids who say “NO” to destructive choices and “YES” to endless possibilities.

With Guest Speaker, Rudy Ruettiger!

Rudy is a Notre Dame Fighting Irish football alumnus, who’s life story became the inspiration behind the major motion picture, “Rudy”, starring Sean Astin in the titular role. It was ranked the 54th-most inspiring film of all time in the American Film Institute’s “100 Years” series.

Rudy is a compassionate speaker who continues to encourage the public on over-coming obstacles, perservering through adversity, and making the most of every second of your life. The day of our Empower Gala, October 20th, is National Youth Confidence Day, and we are so grateful to have Rudy speak on this topic.

Kids Champion Award Recipient

We are also excited to announce that the 2023 Kid’s Champion Award will be presented to The Belgio Family. The Belgio Family has supported KidsMatter since the very beginning in a variety of important ways. We look forward to celebrating them at the Empower Gala.
