Greater Kansas City Day on Monday will again raise money to send kids with disabilities to summer camp.
The 28th annual event coincides with the home opener of the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium against the Chicago White Sox.
Volunteers and celebrities will sell special editions of The Kansas City Star all over town. Each paper will cost $1. Proceeds benefit the Kansas City Rotary Club 13 Youth Camp.
New this year, The Kansas City Star will host a First Pitch Party from 6:30 to 9 a.m. at the newspaper’s Press Pavilion, 1601 McGee St., with former players, sportswriters, live music, Roasterie coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts. Newspapers sold at the party also will benefit the camp.
The 26-acre Rotary youth camp is wheelchair accessible and designed for children with physical, mental or emotional difficulties. The camp has 13 dorm-style cabins, a dining hall and a zero-entry swimming pool.
