Celebrating its 56th consecutive year in 2018, fans and members of the Kansas City business community will commemorate the start of another NFL season at the 2018 Chiefs Kickoff Luncheon. The event, taking place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, August 24 at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown, will benefit the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce for the seventh year in a row.
One of the most unique events of the entire year, the Kickoff Luncheon will feature appearances by the full 2018 Chiefs roster, including all members of the coaching staff. In addition, the event will be highlighted by remarks from Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, Head Coach Andy Reid, General Manager Brett Veach and a number of veteran players.
Tickets for the event are now available through the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce at https://membership.kcchamber.com/events/details/2018-chiefs-kickoff-luncheon-9404.
"One of our most anticipated events of the year, the annual Chiefs Kickoff Luncheon is a great opportunity for us to engage with the entire Kansas City business community while celebrating Chiefs Kingdom," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. "A tradition that began with our founder Lamar Hunt, we look forward to joining our supporters to kick off the 2018 season."
"As we approach the annual Chiefs Kickoff Luncheon, our thanks, once again, to the Kansas City Chiefs for selecting the KC Chamber as its partner in this always-exciting event," President & CEO of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Joe Reardon said. "Proceeds of this event support the Chamber's 'Big 5' initiatives for Kansas City, including early education, transportation, entrepreneurship, the arts, and the Urban Neighborhood Initiative."
Over $600,000 has been raised in the last six years in support of the Big 5 – five specific areas outlined by the Chamber to improve the Kansas City region.
Sponsorship packages are available, some of which include exclusive meet-and-greet opportunities with players and coaches. Single admission tickets start at $75. For more information on purchasing tickets please email KC Chamber Events Director Morgan Moravec at firstname.lastname@example.org.
