As the COVID-19 pandemic intensified in March of 2020, we made the decision to transform our annual luncheon into a 12-hour online celebration and fundraiser. Despite the swift change, we raised over $120,000. We are grateful to our staff and supporters for adapting and making the day a success!
We look forward to hosting our luncheon in person again when circumstances allow!
The 2020 Kempe Award Honorees:
Imhoff Family Community Award: Blue Ribbon Home Warranty
Blue Ribbon Home Warranty, locally owned and operated since 1985, has always been involved in supporting the greater good of the community and we have come to know their generous spirit. Their support over the years and their belief in the work of Kempe and the children and families we serve is why we are proud to name them our 2020 Imhoff Family Community Award Honoree.
For over 17 years, Rivera has been a foster youth advocate for Kempe’s Fostering Healthy Futures program, an evidence-based intervention for pre-adolescent children in out-of-home care. She has raised awareness for children in the foster care system and has provided much needed support to Kempe and the children we serve to promote healthy youth development.
