The Winter Warm Up serves as the primary fund raising event for Cardinals Kids Care, the team’s charity that has used proceeds to fund nearly $21 million in grants and donations to area kids since inception in 1997. Cardinal players, coaches and staff along with dozens of volunteers work to deliver this charity event.
At the core of the WWU, in return for a donation Cardinal fans gain autographs and the chance to meet most any player. This happens with dozens of Cardinal dignitaries each signing for two hours.
Other attractions include indoor activities for the kids, St Louis Cardinal booths, outside vendor booths and a memorabilia auction table just outside the main room. There are presentation screens inside the main room with a stage and some live auctions there as well.
Many live interviews are also hosted on the main stage by the main KMOX and Fox Sports Midwest announcers. They speak with players past and present along with managers and other members of the staff.
