EMPOWER Gala 2019

Saturday, September 14, 2019

On Saturday evening, September 14, 2019, KidsMatter and Team B2B (the Naperville Chamber Business to Business) will partner to bring you EMPOWER, an annual Gala focused on the needs of children, teens, and young adults in DuPage and Will Counties.

This year’s fun-filled evening will follow 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.
