Become a Sponsor for Kids' Day at the K

Let’s forget about how poorly the Royals are playing for a minute and focus on something we can do something about.

As I’ve spoken to many Royals fans over the past few years, I hear a common theme regarding the way they became interested in the team. Many became fans when their fathers took them to a game. Many became fans when grandfathers, uncles, cousins, some other family member, or somebody else took them to a game. There’s something about being at the ballpark, especially as a kid, that is magical. From the possibility of catching a foul ball to the possibility of seeing a home run, the ballpark experience is one that kids don’t forget.

With that in mind, when I saw Adam Cain put a message on Twitter the other day about the Royals offering various ticket packages to raise money for various children’s charities with the intention of bringing kids to the ballpark on August 9 for Kids’ Day, I told him I was in. I’m hoping you will be too. Here’s what you need to know:

For every $10.00 that is donated, one child gets to attend the game on August 9 when the Royals play Oakland at 1:10 pm. You can pick the charity of your choice or you can allow the Royals to pick one—they will choose the Boys and Girls Club or the Official Royals Charities. If you have a preference, just tell Adam when you contact him.

There are various levels of packages, but I won’t go into the details. If you’d like to know more, please contact Adam (his contact info is below). But basically, the way it work is, if we can get people to buy at least 25 tickets, then the Royals begin to match tickets. I’d love to see Royals’ fans send at least 10 kids to the game. If you'd like to participate, please contact Adam directly:

Let him know that you are coming from Royal Reflections so he can keep track of how much money we raise and so I'll be able to come back and let you know how many kids will get to attend the game on August 9 because of your generosity.

How many tickets do the Royals donate to kids charities Lee?

I'm not sure, but I'm sure Adam could answer that question. Shoot him an email.

We will start matching once a total of $250 has been raised (25 kids + 25 Royals match for a total of 50 kids) make sense?
