KidzMatter in Naperville

Naperville is a community that loves to give back, especially when there’s pizza involved.

Lou Malnati’s hosted their annual “KidzMatter to Lou Malnati’s” event – donating 20 percent of the proceeds on Monday June 6th to the charity.

Patrons enjoyed performances by local student musicians, and of course the delicious pizza.

“We are very thankful to Lou Malnati’s this has been a KidzMatter event for 10 years now. It’s just a great way to celebrate the youth in this community and the tremendous talent we have. It’s a packed event every year – get some great pizza and support KidzMatter,” said KidzMatter Board President, Josh McBroom.

This year the bulk of the donations made will go towards KidzMatter’s efforts to eliminate the use of heroin in our community.

This year the event was so popular that Malnati’s had wait times of up to an hour and a half.
