Shining a light on kids finding their pathway to a fulfilling life.
This year’s fun-filled evening followed the theme of the game of LIFE, a game that ties directly into our mission to build resilient kids who say “No” to destructive choices and “Yes” to endless possibilities.
More than 300 influential business professionals, community leaders and philanthropic donors who understand and believe in KidsMatter and our ability to EMPOWER children joined us this year for our Gala on September 14, 2019.
Gala features included performances and displays of art and robotics by local youth from the following high schools: Metea Valley, Naperville Central, Naperville North, Neuqua Valley and Waubonsie Valley, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, a live and raffle basket auction, dinner during the main program, a paddle-raise, heads ‘n tails, Share the Wealth, a bottle bonanza and dancing to the sounds of the band, Trés Moustache.
Every year, we rely on the tremendous support of our business and community sponsors to make our Gala one that people will remember. Thank you to the following sponsors and to our devoted Board Members, Fundraising and Decoration Committees, and attendees for helping to champion the vision of KidsMatter to EMPOWER kids, realize their potential, know their value and find their pathway.
