Kansas City monarchs help raise funds for Rotary Youth Camp

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City Monarchs kick off their minor league season Friday night by raising money for the Rotary Youth Camp.

Several locations are selling Monarchs tickets and caps as part of Greater Kansas City Day.

For many years, Kansas City Day was all about selling newspapers and flags to benefit children’s charities.

Now, after a short hiatus, baseball fans can receive a Monarchs commemorative baseball cap and two tickets to a Monarchs game for a $20 donation to Rotary Youth Camp.

The Monarchs are the defending league champions, so the team is expecting another exciting season this year.

“We’ve done so much here,” said team owner Mark Brandmeyer.

“We have renovated all the suites. We now have a Legends Club. We have new food offers. The peloton looks amazing, and this year the team will be better than ever. Last year we won the 2021 American Association Championship. And this year we hope to repeat.

Caps and tickets are available Friday at all Hy-Vee stores, Union Station, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and Roasterie cafes.
