The Kansas City Chiefs served as the host city for this past April’s NFL draft and didn’t disappoint with thousands of fans in attendance. The multiple days of events made it an unforgettable experience for many locals in the community..
A busy man during the NFL draft festivities was Travis Kelce, who, along with his many offseason activities, hosted a concert called “Kelce Jam” and a live episode of his New Heights podcast with brother Jason. Chiefs legendary running back Jamaal Charles joined the All-Pro tight end for another special event that weekend.
The duo welcomed guests to the Kansas City Community Garden’s annual Tomato Days event giving back to the community. The garden works with groups and schools in the Kansas City Metropolitan area work together to grow their vegetables & fruit.
The NFL and Lowe’s partnered to host the event to support the garden and its mission to empower and inspire low-income households. Lowe’s donated a dense and shed to the local community garden, giving Kelce his own plaque on the shed.
Kelce and Charles were teammates briefly for three seasons before the latter finished his career with the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars. It was a refreshing look at two all-time Chiefs greats working together to assist and celebrate the Kansas City community.
