The Kansas City Blues Rugby Club has a special goal in mind – one that doesn’t involve scoring points on a rugby field. River of Refuge and KC Blues are partnering in the inaugural Rooftop Blues, an attention-getting fundraiser to help open the city’s first-of-its-kind comprehensive transitional housing dedicated solely to assisting families trapped in pay-by-the-week motels.
Starting Thursday, March 6, players will camp out on the rooftop of River of Refuge at 5155 Raytown Road for as long as it takes to raise $25,000. The funds benefit River of Refuge, a soon-to-open 11-unit apartment complex designed to offer resources and transitional refuge to homeless working parents and their children.
They’re staying put until the goal is met! Please support the Blues as they brave the elements to raise funds and awareness for this much needed program.
