500,000 tickets given to deserving kids, families, teachers and military servicemen since 1991.
Eddies Kids is a registered 501c charity that provides sporting event tickets to deserving children, teachers and military servicemen and women. 100 percent of every dollar we receive goes toward a ticket for every deserving recipient. Since 1991 recipients have received over 500,000 tickets to Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Rapids, Mammoth and the Los Angeles Kings games. Recently kids also began attending the National Western Stock Show.
Most kids receive a ticket as a reward for academic achievement through charities like The Red Cross, YMCA and the Make A Wish Foundation, just to name a few. Thanks to the generosity of Kroenke Sports, the Los Angeles Kings, and your donations the kids receive exceptional tickets and a night they will never forget.

Going to a major sporting event is something a lot of people take for granted. We buy a ticket, cheer on our team and escape for a few hours. But for many kids, they will never have the chance to experience that special night in person - that’s where Eddie W. and the Eddie’s Kids Foundation come in. Eddie knew what it was like to not have the means to see professional sporting events as a kid, but occasionally through the generosity of anonymous donors, he was able to attend a Blackhawks game or Packers game and he was hooked on sports for life. Eddie promised himself that if he could ever afford to host underserved kids at professional sporting events and give them an experience of a lifetime he would.
Eddie believes that the power of sport is unlike anything else in our community. Watching the best athletes in the world compete and seeing the passion, dedication and commitment to be the very best at what you do is a consistent theme to any aspect of life. With Eddie W. and his foundation’s help, tens of thousands of kids have been able to escape for a few hours and not worry about anything other than having fun at a game. Some kids may leave the sporting event just a little more passionate, dedicated and committed to their own pursuits a little more than before. KSE is proud to partner with Eddie’s Kids Foundation at Nuggets, Avalanche, Mammoth and Rapids games in Colorado and give kids a special night out and to cheer on their home teams.
