The Chiefs Cheerleaders recently entertained Kansas City crowds with two showings of their two hour Broadway styled variety show. "Celebrate America" has been a labor of love for our troops," explains Cheerleader Director, Elaine Hart. "The sacrifices the men and women of our military make on a daily basis are unbelievable. The show is a small thank you gift to our armed forces and we perform the show once a year here in Kansas City so our fans can get a sneak peak at the production."
January and February military tours find the Chiefs Cheerleaders heading to Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland where they will visit wounded warriors and perform "Celebrate America". This is the first show of its type to be performed at the famous hospital. The cheerleaders are also entertaining military members and their families at Thule Air Base in Greenland, and bases in El Salvador and Honduras. "We're thrilled to bring a little piece of home to our troops stationed in these remote bases. Freedom isn't free and on behalf of the Chiefs, we are privileged to show our appreciation to our soldiers."
The Chiefs Cheerleaders have previously toured bases in Egypt, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Cuba, Spain, Portugal, and stateside at bases throughout the nation.
