Command Raises Funds and Awareness for Lupus Research

July 12, 2012

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Command will announce a $5,000 donation during Saturday night’s game at Sprint Center with an on-field check presentation to the Alliance for Lupus Research that partners with Eddie Kennison’s QuickStart efforts. “Eddie has been a valuable part of the Command family this season,” said team chairman Chris Likens. “We are happy to join his efforts in raising awareness by making a donation to Lupus research.”

In addition, one dollar from every ticket sold for Saturday night’s game will be given to the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR), a non-profit organization with the mission of finding a cure for lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that strikes 1.4 million Americans – including Shimika Kennison, Eddie’s wife. The Kennison family now partners with the ALR to raise funds for lupus research. Eddie Kennison and Kansas City Royals General Manager Dayton Moore are this year’s honorary co-chairs for the Kansas City Area Metro Walk With Us to Cure Lupus on October 27th. Volunteers will also be set up in the concourse of Sprint Center on Saturday before the game with more information regarding the walk in October.

“Teaming up with ALR has been a dream come true for the Kennison family,” said Eddie Kennsion. “Not only does ALR do awesome work to find a cure for lupus, but the people within the organization are first class. ALR has enhanced our fund-raising efforts in our continued quest to cure lupus,” he said.
