Red Friday was a huge success!
On the morning of Red Friday, Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, President Mark Donovan, General Manager John Dorsey, red coaters and volunteers took to the streets to sell the exclusive Chiefs Kingdom flags. Over 35,000 flags were sold with all of the proceeds benefitting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City.
"Red Friday is so unique and is one of the things that really makes Kansas City special," Hunt said. "It's great to see so many Chiefs fans out wearing red and supporting the Chiefs. We're very excited for this upcoming season and happy to celebrate the start of the season with the fans on Red Friday."
Hunt was sure to thank all of the fans he met on Friday and even made some special trips to surprise two of the Chiefs Season Ticket Members.
"It was a very nice surprise to have Clark Hunt at our offices on Red Friday," Gary Weidenbach, President & CEO of Rosehill Gardens. "This means so much to us. We were all very excited to have Clark here and thrilled to celebrate Red Friday with him."
Later that night, Chiefs fans gathered at Union Station and enjoyed live music from Kansas native, Logan Mize.
"I grew up a Chiefs fan and my dad is a huge Chiefs fan; he's very excited to be here at Red Friday and is decked out in his Chiefs gear," Mize said. "This is a great event and it means a lot that the Chiefs asked me to perform at Red Friday. It's been incredible."
There were activities for the whole family and fans heard from Voice of the Chiefs Mitch Holthus and a number of Chiefs players.
