Cardinals Care Summer grant cycle to aid 93 area nonprofits

ST. LOUIS, Mo., September 25, 2017 – Cardinals Care (#CardsCare) will distribute over $194,000 to 93 area nonprofit groups that support local kids during a ceremony Tuesday, September 26, at Busch Stadium.  A Cardinals player, executives and Fredbird will all take part in the afternoon event.


WHAT:                 Cardinals Care 2017 Summer Grant Ceremony

WHEN:                 Tuesday, September 26, at 3:00 p.m.

WHO:                   Cardinals Care along with a Cardinals player, executives, Fredbird and hundreds of children and representatives from many of the organizations who will benefit from the Cardinals Care Grants.

WHERE:               Guests & media are asked to check in beginning at 2:15 p.m. at Gate 3 (third base side of Busch Stadium).  Please arrive no later than 2:45 p.m.

Cardinals Care was established to give fans a way of teaming up with Cardinals players and the organization to help children in our community—both on and off the baseball field.  Established in 1997, Cardinals Care has invested over $22 million to support St. Louis area children and built or renovated 23 youth ball fields in local under-resourced neighborhoods.  Most recently, the Cardinals dedicated Dexter Fowler Field at Hess Park in Decatur, Ill. in July 2017.  This season marked the 14th year of Cardinals Care’s innovative Redbird Rookies program, a free baseball league for kids who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play.  In addition to providing all the uniforms, gloves, bats, balls and other equipment needed for each team, Redbird Rookies also provides extensive off-field support in the areas of health, education, mentoring and the cultural arts for each of the nearly 3,000 kids who participate in the program each year.
