The women’s basketball program received a grant from the NCAA to promote the Roos Kansas City Day. The team will be wearing customized jerseys, courtesy of Charlie Hustle, and will be auctioning them off on-site.

UMKC has partnered with Turn the Page KC and the local Boys & Girls Club, that includes a pick-up and drop-off of children and their families at the Thornberry Club for Saturday’s game.

There will be a pre-game party from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. with a DJ, face painting, games and a balloon artist, while the first 500 fans in attendance will receive a special giveaway. A book donation will also be held to help benefit Turn the Page KC.
