Naperville will be on fire with talent Thursday night as 62 teen performers for the first KidsMatter talent show benefit.
Along with all of the local teen talent, which includes student performers from schools all around the area, Gina Glocksen, a ninth place finalist in American Idol season six and Naperville native, will also be performing during the event.
Funds raised at the event will help KidsMatter continue its programs, which KidsMatter said provides “character-building events and community outreach programs to arm youth with the tools they need to battle the debilitating stressors of everyday life and link youth and families with a wide variety of volunteer opportunities.”
Tickets for the event, which will be held at Wentz Concert Hall, are $15 for students and $35 for adults. A $65 VIP ticket includes VIP seating and a benefit cocktail reception before the event. Tickets can be purchased at the North Central College Box Office at 630-637-SHOW or online
