Jazz & Jackie

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM), in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation, City of Kansas City, MO and NTDF, proudly present Jazz & Jackie: A Monarchs Salute to Jackie Robinson.
 
When Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseballs color-barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 he not only changed the game but America too. But before Jackie wore number 42 for the Dodgers, he wore number 5 for the Kansas City Monarchs.
 
"Jazz & Jackie" celebrates his KC professional baseball roots and his unbridled love of Jazz, a KC art form.
 
The event takes place on the anniversary of Robinsons first game with the Monarchs and features a soul-stirring performance by Grammy nominated and Soul Train Award-winning artist Maysa.  Proceeds benefit the NLBM.
 
Maysa is an American jazz singer better known by her mononym Maysa. She is well known by fans of smooth jazz both for her solo work and for her work with the British band Incognito.
 
Choose from general admission seating or ticket packages which include a VIP pre-event reception. Tickets are available online HERE!

Shelia Cooper | Stem Cell Drive

Shelia Cooper, is a mother and grandmother. For 36 years Shelia worked for Heart of America United Way, giving to the community, supporting those that were less fortunate. After retirement Shelia continued her philanthropic work, working alongside her daughter as a volunteer to support children that had lost parents to murder. Each year Ms. Cooper gives back during Christmas, making sure children that have lost a parent to murder can celebrate the holiday with gifts. 

On February 11th Shelia’s life changed. After spending the afternoon with her family, she experienced some confusion.  The family thought Shelia may have been experiencing a stroke, but later discovered in a local emergency room, that her confusion was related to a diagnosis of blood cancer, Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  Shelia has went through multiple rounds of chemotherapy, but the only chance of survival is a stem cell transplant.

There are 22 million registered donors, but due to a low percentage of ethnic donors, Ms. Cooper can’t find a likely match. We are asking that you take 20 minutes to have your cheeks swabbed to see if you are a possible match for Shelia and others searching for their miracle match.
