The Halton School is based in Huntersville, North Carolina and is designed for 3rd through 8th graders with Asperger’s and traits associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Their smaller class sizes allow for individualized education while also promoting healthy socialization amongst the student population.
The Halton School is more than a school for these students, it is a home away from home. The funds raised are donated to the student scholarship fund to assist low-income families in enrolling their exceptional child into this highly personalized school.
This charity fundraising is especially close to our hearts as our founders son, Kaleb, attends The Halton School as a thriving student. Kaleb was at the 2023 YOU Powered Symposium selling raffle tickets and overcame his stage fright by announcing the winner at our annual Awards Banquet!
Our first annual charity event was a Roast of of everyone’s favorite insurance antagonist, David Contorno, CEO of E Powered Benefits. Frank MicDropper and Ben Winfield made a variety of digs to this red faced CEO and even opened up the stage to audience participation. A night full of laughs with all proceeds going to RIP Medical Debt.
RIP Medical Debt focuses on abolishing medical debt for families and communities.
“RIP Medical Debt was founded in 2014 by two former debt collections executives. Over the course of decades in the debt-buying industry they met with thousands of Americans saddled with unpaid and un-payable medical debt and realized they were uniquely qualified to help those in need.
They imagined a new way to relieve medical debt: by using donations to buy large bundles of debt that is erased with no tax consequences to donors or recipients.
A Charity Carnival was held in Miami to raise money for Dollar For. We played carnival games, ate hot dogs and fried oreos, and put some of our favorite industry celebrities in the Dunk Tank!
“Dollar For is a national nonprofit that crushes medical bills by empowering patients and advocating on their behalf.
Dollar For is here to help. We educate patients about these programs, help patients navigate the application process, and call out hospitals that don’t follow regulations. We have already crushed over $19 million in medical bills. Our work is entirely funded through philanthropic grants and donations. Our services are completely free – no strings attached.”

Each year, this sibling duo works hard to fundraise for organizations committed to improving access to resources for autistic youth, whether that's the YOU Powered 50/50 raffle to benefit the student scholarship fund at The Halton School where Kaleb is enrolled, or an annual sensory-friendly walk with Autism Speaks.
