Kluber’s Kids A Home Party: Adrian August 18th, 2020 Dallas, Texas
On select home games throughout the season, Corey and Amanda usually host a child from DFW-area children’s hospitals at Globe Life Field for a dream day at the ballpark. As part of this longstanding program, the child and his or her family and friends will meet Corey and Amanda, watch batting practice on the field, shop at the team shop, enjoy a classic ballpark dinner and stay for the game.

However, this year’s program looks a little bit different due to the MLB’s coronavirus rules. Corey and Amanda have elected to host Kluber’s Kids At-Home Parties instead. The Kluber’s first at-home participant was Adrian, who enjoyed the program on Tuesday afternoon!

Adrian, a Ft. Worth resident, is very thankful to be the first Kluber’s Kid this season.  Adrian is a huge Rangers fan and enjoys playing baseball, too. He is an outstanding 2nd Baseman. He is 11 and has battled kidney disease from the age of 3. He had a full kidney replacement at age 10. The donor? His very own brother!

He was only back in school about 60 days this year before the COVID quarantine shut the school down. He will continue with online classes this fall. On August 18th, Adrian had his first day back to school and wasn’t too thrilled with that virtual experience. However, on that same day, the Kluber Family Foundation was able to celebrate Adrian’s strength!

Adrian and his family received an at-home baseball-themed watch party to enjoy the Rangers vs. Padres game on Tuesday afternoon. The watch party was catered by Pluckers Wing Bar and came complete with a #28 Kluber jersey and a special video message from Corey and Amanda themselves.

In addition, Adrian and his family also received Kluber’s Kids t-shirts, Rangers hats, cardboard cutouts at the Globe Life Field, and vouchers for tickets to a Rangers game next season. To top it off, Adrian and his family were highlighted as part of the Rangers broadcast during the game.

This special experience brought smiles to the faces of Adrian and his family during what has been a challenging year. The Kluber Family Foundation was honored to treat Adrian to our first Kluber’s Kids program of the 2020 MLB season! Click here to view photos from Tuesday’s Kluber’s Kids program.

Indians Pitcher Corey Kluber Raises More Than $206,000 at 'Curveball for a Cause' Gala

CLEVELAND (SEPTEMBER 17, 2019) – On Monday night, Cleveland Indians Pitcher Corey Kluber hosted his second annual fundraising event in Cleveland for his Kluber Family Foundation at the Metropolitan at the 9 Hotel. The event, called ‘Curveball for a Cause,’ benefitted outreach programs for the Kluber Family Foundation, and it featured Kluber and 20 current and former Indians players mingling with nearly 200 guests in attendance. Attendees were treated to a lively cocktail reception, plated dinner and a live and silent auction. More than $206,000 was raised in support of the Kluber Family Foundation, including a $25,000 donation pledged by Kluber himself.

During the event, Kluber spoke at length about his foundation and why his mission of assisting families with seriously and chronically ill children is so important to him and his wife, Amanda. They also recognized 11-year-old Grady Schlabach and his family at the event for their courage and sacrifice. Grady, who participated in the ‘Kluber’s Kids’ program in June, has been battling cancer for several months. His fight against his illness has proved to be an inspiration for the foundation’s mission and outreach.

One of the ways the Kluber Family Foundation fulfills this mission is through the newly-founded ‘Kluber’s Korner’ program, which installs state-of-the-art tech lockers in local pediatric hospitals as a way of providing entertainment during extended hospital stays. The inaugural ‘Kluber’s Korner’ was unveiling in June at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. Through the funds raised on Monday evening, Kluber will be able to launch his second ‘Kluber’s Korner’ in 2019.

“Amanda and I have spent a lot of time over our years here in Cleveland visiting hospitals and interacting with kids and families,” said Kluber. “We are truly inspired by seeing what they deal with every day and how gracefully and courageously they do it.”

Andre Knott, Cleveland Indians reporter, served as the event’s emcee and utilized the excitement and energy from the Indians’ battle for a wild card spot to generate donations throughout the evening. Kluber’s teammates showed up in force to support his mission of impacting the lives of seriously ill youth. Indians players in attendance included Jason Kipnis, Shane Bieber and Brad Hand.

IMPACT

Corey and Amanda have spent time in children’s hospitals and have seen the impact that having a sick child has on the entire family. They hope to connect with these families to help make the road a little easier through their programming.

NEED

Children with serious and chronic illnesses endure constant difficulties. Limited mobility, regular hospital visits, time away from school, financial instability, and painful physical conditions all work to lessen their quality of life.

WHY?

Since breaking into the Majors in 2011 with the Cleveland Indians, Corey has become one of the league’s most involved players in the community. Corey and Amanda have spent countless hours visiting to children’s hospitals and meeting with many families who have children battling for their lives.

IMPACTING LIVES ONE
FAMILY AT A TIME.

The mission of The Kluber Family Foundation is to impact the lives of families who have seriously ill and chronically ill children, by providing them with daily support through live-improving resources and life-changing experiences.
