Royals Charities – Diamond of Dreams

Kauffman Stadium was the fabulous setting for Royals Charities’ Diamond of Dreams.  More than 1,250 guests enjoyed drinks, delicious fare from local restaurants, a silent auction, aerial arts performances, a VIP Party featuring Tiffany & Co., a concert by Rachel Platten, and a fireworks show. More than $325,000 was raised to support the building of a Fisher House in Kansas City.
