KC Masterpiece and Baja 600 will serve lunch on the course for participants. Then, following a day of golf, Royals Charities is throwing a reception with plenty of appetizers and drinks as well as an awards program and additional silent auction.

Like all good things, there are a limited number of spots for the event available…so you need to reserve your spot now.

Or…if you don’t want to pick up a golf club at all, you can “Ride with a Royal” for the day for $1,000.
