Greater Kansas City Day is a collaboration among The KC Star, the Kansas City Royals and many area Rotary Clubs.  Every Royals home opener, for over 25 years, hundreds of volunteers have taken to the streets to sell special edition copies of The KC Star for a donation.  A portion of these donations will go to benefit a charity of the Centurions own choosing. That’s where your nominations come in.

Criteria:

Your submission must be a 501(c)3 charity/non-profit organization 
Your submission should be an organization geared towards serving kids
Your submission may not be an organization that has previously been selected in recent years.

Please see the list below to confirm your submission’s eligibility and submit your nominations by March 17 here>>
