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.

2019 in Review: Look What You Helped Us Accomplish
Posted By:  Austin Alley
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

As we enter 2020, we'd like to look back the past year and offer a big THANK YOU to all our donors, supporters and volunteers for everything you have helped us accomplish in the past year! The Kluber Family Foundation was able to touch the lives of 204,170 people in 2019, including children like Grady Schlabach and his family! Please click here to watch their story.

During the year, we continued the longstanding Kluber’s Kids program on game days at Progressive Field. Families from Cleveland Clinic Children’s were invited to attend batting practice on the field, explore the stadium, shop at the team’s pro-shop, dine in the Club Lounge and, of course, enjoy the game from premier seats. We were able to improve the family experience this year by incorporating Team Shop gift cards for each family member while having foundation board members join the families for the game as hosts. A total of ten different families were impacted by Corey and Amanda’s original program this past year.

In June, Corey and Amanda made time to visit UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital to unveil their inaugural Kluber’s Korner. Kluber’s Korner features a pair of mobile tech lockers that house dozens of electronic entertainment devices, such as Chromebook laptops, portable DVD players and Nintendo Switches. The Kluber’s even joined in on the action by playing Mario Kart with the pediatric patients attending the ribbon cutting ceremony!

The second annual Curveball for a Cause, held at the Metropolitan at the 9, highlighted the month of September. Corey was joined by 20 of his teammates for a night that honored the courage of all the children fighting serious illnesses. Together, we raised $186,799 in support of the Kluber Family Foundation and its mission to impact the lives of seriously ill children and their families!

Before the season came to an end, Corey was presented with the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award on the field before a game against the Tigers. The award acknowledges one MLB player each year for outstanding humanitarian efforts. Congratulations to Corey!

We would not have been able to create such meaningful impact here in Cleveland without your continued support of the Kluber Family Foundation. To view photos from this past year, visit our website’s photo gallery or our Facebook albums.

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.
