EmpowerHER holds fundraising event
The Patriot Ledger published wonderful photographs from our Havana Nights themed Soiree that took place on September 28th, 2017.
The Kraft family and New England Patriots Charitable Foundation's Myra Kraft Community MVP Awards place a spotlight on those who give their time to help others and exemplify leadership, dedication and a commitment to improving their communities through volunteerism. On June 2nd, founder Cara Belvin was recognized for her contributions at a luncheon and awards ceremony at Gillette Stadium and awarded a grant of $10,000 for our young organization.
"This event will always be one of my favorite community programs that we do," said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. "The story of each recipient and the cause they are supporting is so unique and inspiring. I know that, just like Myra, none of these winners were looking for any recognition but we are happy to shine some light on the great work they are doing in their communities." On hand to congratulate the award winners were Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, New England Patriots Charitable Foundation President Joshua Kraft and Patriots and Pro Football Hall of Famer and Patriots Executive Director of Community Affairs Andre Tippett and Hall of Famers Tom Brady & Rob Gronkowski.

Kristina Keymont, a Braintree High School student, lost her mother a few years ago. She participated in an empowerHER Mother’s Day retreat."When I met these women for the first time I was amazed by how strong they are and how caring they are when they didn't need to be,” she said. “Cara Belvin and Melanie Toirac (mentor) have shown me a lot and how to become a strong woman and to show all us girls that we are not alone. Melanie gave me a present the last time we saw each other, it was a picture that is now hung on my wall with a quote that says, "What if I fall? Oh, darling what if you fly..." This reminds me everyday I can do anything in life and to never give up."empowerHER remains a volunteer-driven organization and all programs and initiatives are held at no charge to the family.
