The painting was done by William Rose.

All the players and coaches have acquired canvases for their homes, including Eric Hosmer, Salvador Pérez, Alex Gordon, Ned Yost—and over 500 fans. Get yours before the editions sell out! The mural has been praised by Sports Illustrated, ESPN, and of course legions of Kansas Citians. Each signed, limited edition print is made of archival materials.

Local Teen Named Missouri Youth of the Year by Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Selected among ten outstanding youth at a gala luncheon in Jefferson City, Missouri, KaeShawn S. has been named the Missouri Youth of the Year by Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). The Youth of the Year title is a prestigious honor bestowed upon an exemplary teen in recognition of leadership, service, academic excellence and dedication to live a healthy lifestyle. As the Missouri Youth of the Year, KaeShawn will serve as an ambassador for all teens in the state, will receive $6,000 in college scholarships and will go on to compete for the regional Youth of the Year title, ultimately vying for the national title. The gala luncheon, attended by local Youth of the Year winners from across the state, is the culmination of months of hard work, community service, and speech and essay preparation by Missouri’s youth.

The “Magic Sauce”

Daneisha, has a great future ahead of her. This talented high school senior has college on her horizon. But two years ago she was hanging out with the wrong crowd and getting into trouble. That’s when her mother enrolled her in the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City.

There, Daneisha tasted the “magic sauce” – the special adult to Club member relationship that keeps kids coming back to the Clubs. From sports and technology to music production and the arts, Club members have a host of programming opportunities available to them.  Getting children and youth “in the game” and developing talents to their full potential is the goal of the Clubs.

In the words of Ms. Daneisha, “Come to the Boys & Girls Clubs because it’s lots of Fun!”
