Some of our Fun Events…


We never closed during the pandemic– we just made adjustments for safe outdoor or “single family” activities. Sunset Winnie with Chloe

We couldn’t have our baseball team– so we gave all the kids “baseball bats and baseballs.” While the kids missed our annual baseball team played with kiddie bats and balls, they enjoyed receiving these little gifts.

Rainbows for Kids… Giving Kids Something to Look Forward to



Our All-Star Baseball Day at All-Star Performance Baseball facility is always a highlight for the families. There is usually a Cardinals player who shows up. The photo above shows Dylan Carlson and Lars Nootbaar with the kids. Each kid gets a chance to play “catch” with the major leaguers. How many kids can say they played catch with a major leaguer? These kids can– and all due to the generosity of the players, or sponsors, our volunteers, and Bascha and Matt Whitesides of All-Star Performance.

Mike Shildt took to the microphone gave a very touching “pep talk” to the parents and kids. These families are going through a family member with cancer and a night like this one was such a special memory. Anyone who has helped Rainbows for Kids has had a hand in this event. Thank you to all our donors and volunteers for making these dreams come true for these kids and their parents.

One of the most-loved things Rainbows for Kids does is the annual All-Star Baseball Team. Recently we have started a “selfie” tradition:
