Chiefs, ERC again partnering on ticket sales fundraiser for scholarship program

For the past four years, the Emporia Recreation Commission and Kansas City Chiefs have offered regular-season tickets at a discount to raise money for the Rec Commission's youth scholarship program.


This year, two preseason dates are available -- Aug. 7 against Cincinnati and Aug. 23 against Minnesota. Rec Commission marketing supervisor Jennifer Bennett says there are good seats available now for a hefty discount.

The Rec Commission will charter a bus for the Aug. 23 game. An extra $30 gets you a ticket for that trip.

In the past, the fundraiser -- which has been held during the regular season -- has generated over $30,000. Things change every season, and the Chiefs' success last year prompted the team to ask the Rec Commission to sell the preseason tickets.
