Lee Warren over at Royal Reflections has become a champion for Kids’ Day at the K. You can read his initial post and updates here, here, and here. Royals Review has also taken up the effort, click here. Please consider donating to the cause to help some youngsters take in a Royals game that otherwise might not have a chance to do so. We all have fond memories of games we went to as kids and, in my humble opinion, all kids should have a chance at those memories. If you decide to donate, make sure you mention that you are part of the Royal Reflections pool to ensure that donations from KoK readers add to the efforts already made by the other sites.
Instructions and details have been provided on the other two sites, but I’ll include them here as well.
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.
If you’d like to know more, please contact Adam (his contact info is below). But basically, the way it works 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:

I emailed Adam this week, and he is happy to help us out here. You can call him at the number listed above and give him credit card information for your donation. Or you can mail a check.
The address for checks is
Kauffman Stadium Attn: Adam Cain
One Royal Way
Kansas City, MO 64129
(If you do mail a check, be sure to also call or email Adam and let him know you have done so. This way they can have a general idea of how many seats/tickets they need to have ready. According to Adam, checks can be made out to the Kansas City Royals.)
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.
Again, if we get to $250 dollars raised, the Royals will match us, which means another 25 tickets will be bought, good for 50 total. Just remember though, every $10 dollars equals another ticket.
Thanks for taking the time to read this Kings of Kauffman public service announcement.
