Clark Hunt says he’s proud of the example his dad set 50 years ago by encouraging Chiefs to give back

LIBERTY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs kicked off Red Friday with a party in the Northland.

Cheerleaders, KC Wolf and fans all gathered at the McDonald's off Berry Road and I-35 at 6 a.m., to kick off flag sales.

For the third straight year, McDonald's across the metro are selling Chiefs Kingdom flags for $5 each with all the proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House.

McDonald's doubled the order of flags this year and will sell them until they run out.

"My dad set a great example some 50 years ago when he brought the Chiefs to Kansas City," Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt said.  "He encouraged the players, coaches, and the entire staff to give back to the community that's been so good to us and that's really what red Friday is about. It's a chance to kick off the Chiefs season but it's also a chance to get back to the community."

Chiefs fan Brent Cable says, "Love red Friday. I had no idea all of this was going on up here in Liberty but ahhh, thank you, but yeah I just came up to get a couple flags, and I walked into all of this so it's pretty neat."
