Broadcast auction set for August 7

Royals Charities Fundraiser Rescheduled from July 10 Date

KANSAS CITY, MO (July 24, 2015) - Royals Charities, together with FOX Sports Kansas City, announced today the sixth-annual Broadcast Auction will now take place on Friday, August 7 when the Royals host the Chicago White Sox at 7:10 p.m.

The fundraiser was originally scheduled for the FSKC telecast of the series opener with the Toronto Blue Jays on July 10, but was postponed due to an extended rain delay that evening.

The rescheduled event will give viewers the opportunity to bid on unique ballpark experiences, including a collection of bats signed by members of the 2014 American League Championship team, dinner with George Brett, an All-Star jersey package and a shadow box display of this season's popular bobblehead series, including a meet-and-greet with Salvador Perez, Lorenzo Cain, Mike Moustakas and Yordano Ventura. 

Viewers will also be able to purchase an exclusive Royals ticket package for just $99. Beginning at 6:30 p.m. on August 7, viewers can go to www.royals.com/broadcastauction and purchase one of two packages scheduled when the Royals play later in the month. Fans will only be able to purchase the tickets online and will be limited to one package per transaction due to limited inventory.
