THE KANSAS CITY METROPOLITAN
A public safety nonprofit established in 1949.
What We Do
Supported completely through fundraising events and private donations, SAFE (Surviving Spouse and Family Endowment) provides immediate financial assistance to the families of Police, Fire and EMS personnel that lose their lives or are critically injured in the line-of-duty while working in one of the 12 counties in Kansas and Missouri covered by SAFE.
Often, insurance and other benefits can take weeks or even months to pay while the financial responsibilities for the family do not stop. One of the most important aspects of SAFE is the immediate financial assistance provided within 24-48 hours following the tragic loss of their loved one.
About the Tourney
Welcome to our 3rd Annual SAFE Pickleball Tourney! Due to the pandemic, SAFE was unable to host its annual Guns N Hoses fundraiser for 2020. That's when Chicken N Pickle stepped up to the plate and offered the opportunity to play some Pickleball for SAFE. We had so much fun, Pickleball for SAFE is back in 2022!
This event is fun for players of every skill level and each team is guaranteed at least 3 matches. There is plenty of space to invite your family and friends to cheer and have fun!
Advance registration is REQUIRED (Number of teams limited to 36)
