Toys for Tots Collection: A partnership in its 54th year, the Kansas City Chiefs, along with local members of the Marine Corps Combat Logistics Regiment 4 and local representatives of the Marine Corps League, are hosting the annual Toys for Tots collection at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. Fans are encouraged to donate new and unwrapped toys for boys and girls up to the age of 15 as they enter the Arrowhead Stadium gates. United States Marines will also be accepting cash and check donations (made out to “Toys for Tots”) at these stadium collection points if fans prefer to make a monetary donation to support a local child in need this holiday season. To kick off the Toys for Tots drive, the Chiefs Red Coaters, with the help of DICK’S Sporting Goods, donated 70 youth bicycles to the collection. This drive is the longest of its kind between an NFL franchise and the Marine Corps.

GEHA Drum Deck: New in 2019, the Chiefs are introducing an exciting new space to the Arrowhead Stadium gameday experience: the GEHA Drum Deck. Located below the west scoreboard in the upper level, the GEHA Drum Deck is a new, permanent site for two gameday traditions – the Drum Honoree and the Tony DiPardo Spirit Leader.

The new GEHA Drum Deck takes an exciting and important part of the gameday experience from the field level and elevates it to a more prominent position in the stadium, bringing fans in the upper level closer than ever before to a pair of special Arrowhead traditions.

Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat: To help celebrate the franchise’s 60th season, the Kansas City Chiefs introduced the Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat at Arrowhead Stadium. For each home game in the 2019 season, the Chiefs will select one honoree (plus one guest) who embodies the spirit of Lamar Hunt and represents the four pillars of the Chiefs Mission: Win with Character, Unite our Community, Inspire our Fans and Honor Tradition.

The two gold seats are located in Section 121 of the lower bowl, symbolically positioned under Lamar Hunt’s name in the team’s Ring of Honor. Sunday’s honoree is U.S. Air Force and Vietnam War veteran Jerry Tuckwin.

Following his service in the United States military, Tuckwin served as a coach and athletic department administrator, becoming a critical figure in the development of student-athletes navigating through their transition to college life. Tuckwin also continues to be an active figure in the operations of his tribal nation, the Prairie Band Potawatomi.

50/50 Raffle: The Hunt Family Foundation 50/50 Raffle will benefit City Year Kansas City on Sunday. Prices are set at three tickets for $5, 10 tickets for $10 and 60 tickets for $20.

Chiefs President Mark Donovan will be making his way through the Arrowhead Stadium parking lots prior to kickoff on Sunday selling Hunt Family Foundation 50/50 Raffle tickets to benefit City Year.

Additionally, for the first time, the Hunt Family Foundation 50/50 Raffle will receive additional charitable support as Pat Cocherl and the Cocherl Family Foundation have committed to matching the total donation raised for City Year Kansas City, doubling the amount of money that the charity will receive from the HFF 50/50 Raffle.
