Come join Family Bicycles for a day of fun and games on the lawn of the Liberty Memorial! Saturday, October 1st from Noon until 5pm. Plenty of fun for everyone!
KC Games for Good is a one-day event intended to showcase – and to celebrate – that sense of community service and civic pride for which both Kansas City and the Plaza Rotary Club are so well known.
Hosted on the lawn of the National WWI Museum and Memorial, the festival brings together a host of activities and resources under the common banner of “Service Above Self.”
The event includes:
• Exhibit Area
• Team Competitions
• Kids Scavenger Hunt
• Entertainment and other activities
All proceeds from KC Games for Good helps support those in need who are served locally by such organizations as the Urban Ranger Corps and Hope House, as well as those served around the globe through the Plaza Rotary Foundation.
Come out to compete, or simply come out to enjoy the day. Either way, you won’t want to miss out!
