KCUYA Queens of the Diamond

On Thursday, Aug. 30, we held our inaugural fundraising event -- a softball tournament for Kansas City's women leaders, KCUYA Queens of the Diamond. This fun, unique event featured 24 teams competing for amazing prizes while enjoying a morning of networking, team-building and, of course, great food and drinks! All proceeds from the event fund girls' programming at the Academy. More information for our 2019 event will be posted soon!
