Amanda and Corey Kluber

The Kluber Family Foundation has moved the 2020 Curveball for a Cause Celebrity Gala, on September 13 to a completely virtual event. Fox Sports Southwest anchor John Rhadigan will emcee the virtual event with Kluber and several of his Texas Rangers teammates making virtual appearances.

“As a community, we continue to do everything we can to reduce the spread of the coronavirus,” said Corey Kluber, pitcher for the Texas Rangers. “It is in everyone’s best interest for this event to be held virtually. While we may have to adjust to how we gather, families with seriously ill and chronically ill children are struggling and we must come together to bridge the gap.”

Guests participating in the virtual event will receive a Corey Kluber signed baseball and a signed picture frame, a Morton’s Steakhouse, a wine pairing, and a private link to view and participate virtually. The event will still feature silent and live auctions with rare memorabilia, plus once-in-a-lifetime experiences and trips. 

Tickets are $400 per couple or $250 for a single. Proceeds from Curveball for a Cause will support the Kluber Family Foundation’s community outreach programs.  Tickets can be purchased at coreykluber.org

Kluber’s Korner provides patients at children’s hospitals with access to electronics which serve as a source of entertainment, a portal for communication, and a diversion during treatment and recovery. Children will have access to age-appropriate entertainment and learning devices. Educational and entertainment opportunities are also provided to older patients and their families with access to iPads, notebook computers, tablet computers, portable DVD players, portable game systems and other electronics.

Sponsors of the event include Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits, Swimming Duck, Aardvark Communications, the Dallas Business Journal, Qentelli, PSAV and CliftonLarsonAllen LLP. 

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. Since its founding, the Kluber Family Foundation has impacted more than 480,000 individuals. More information is available at coreykluber.org.
