Chiefs Charity Game 2017

THE CHILDREN’S PLACE IS PROUD TO AGAIN BE THE BENEFICIARY OF THE CHIEFS CHARITY GAME. Over the last two year, the committee and agency raised a record breaking $730,000 in 2015 and then broke our own record in 2016 and raised $740,000.

We are excited to again partner with the Kansas City Chiefs for the 2017 Charity Game and hope to ultimately raise even more funds to expand our services to children and families within our community.

The Children’s Place provides critical early interventions and is a recognized leader in the prevention and treatment of abuse, neglect and trauma in children under 8. For almost 40 years, The Children’s Place has been helping children and families not only function, but thrive in their communities.

Operating three main programs: Day Treatment, Outpatient Therapy and Parenting Support Services; The Children’s Place works to help every child overcome any developmental delays and regain a happy and healthy childhood. Learn more about our services and read success stories.

Since 1984, the Chiefs Charity Game has offered vital support for our local community. Over the past two years, 1.4 million has been raised through the Chiefs Charity Game by The Children’s Place as the sole beneficiary. The Chiefs Charity Game is the first pre-season game for the Kansas City Chiefs. Sponsorship opportunities are available ranging from $100,000 to $1,000; benefits include exclusive experiences such as throwing the first pass, a training camp visit, dinner with former players and a rare Super Bowl experience. All sponsors are invited to attend the Chiefs Charity Game (August 11, 2017) in either a suite or on the Club Level and receive a multitude of other exciting benefits.

As noted by Mark Donovan, President of the Chiefs; “The Chiefs organization has established and maintained one of the National Football League’s most successful and unique community initiatives in the Chiefs Charity Game. The Children’s Place has been a safe haven for youth in Kansas City for nearly 40 years. Their commitment to meeting the developmental and mental health needs of local youth makes them a tremendous resource.”
