KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police treated two dozen area kids to a Sunday afternoon at Kauffman Stadium.

The children, ages 8 to 14, with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City watched as the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 10-3 on Sunday.

The kids and their Big Brothers and Big Sisters and were given tickets, T-shirts and food vouchers for the game. Several Kansas City police officers also joined the group and interacted with the kids.

"Trinity and I had so much fun! She had never been to a game or even seen the stadium, so she was thrilled and had many questions," Annelies said.

Big Brothers Big Sisters aims to help children realize their potential and build their futures, nurturing children and strengthening communities.  

Recently, the Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police started a new organization called The Kansas City Police Officers Memorial Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting police officers and building a stronger bond with the community they serve.

"We want to make Kansas City a safer place to live," FOP president Brad Lemon. "We want to be involved with our youth and show them police officers are here to help. This event was just one way to give back and everyone had a really good time."
