Congratulations to our friends at the Kansas City Royals for being honored with the Allan H. Selig Award for Philanthropic Excellence.
Congratulations to our friends at the Kansas City Royals for being honored with the Allan H. Selig Award for Philanthropic Excellence. The Allan H. Selig Award for Philanthropic Excellence, formerly known as the Commissioner’s Award for Philanthropic Excellence, was created in 2010 to recognize the charitable and philanthropic efforts of MLB Clubs.
Major League Baseball recognized the Royals’ efforts to use the Urban Youth Academy as a community resource during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Their efforts provide a model on how organizations can make a meaningful impact in under-served areas that were the most negatively affected by the pandemic”, Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. said.
“Our entire organization is humbled by this award, especially as all 30 MLB clubs do impactful work in our communities,” John Sherman, Chairman and CEO of the Kansas City Royals, said, “I am grateful for the commitment and passion of our associates, and am inspired by their resiliency. There is much more to do. The work continues, with gratitude for the opportunity to support the region we love.”
Teammates has had a great relationship with Kansas City since Garth wore the Royals uniform during Spring Training in 2004 and were proud to help financially with the Urban Youth Academy in 2017. We are thrilled to call you our Teammates.
