15 and The Mahomies raises over $600,000!
We may not see Patrick Mahomes winning on the field this week, since it’s the bye week, but he is certainly winning off it. Quarterbacking the way toward a better Kansas City, Patrick Mahomes and his girlfriend Brittany Matthews created the foundation 15 and The Mahomies to turn the spotlight on local youth charities… and this past Thursday night, they did just that. At their first ever gala, the foundation raised more than $600,000 and distributed $15,000 to 15 different youth charities via their 15 FOR 15 program. Charities that include Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas, Children’s Mercy Hospital, and Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a charity that provides beds for children who don’t have a place to sleep. The complete list of this year’s 15 charities is included below.
- Special Olympics KC

It was also announced on Thursday evening, that 15 and The Mahomies plans to build yet another playground in Kansas City for the local youth. According to 15 and the Mahomies Executive Director Marques Fitch, it “will be accessible for all kids all ages in an area that doesn’t have green space, in an inner city area.”
It is actions like these, that make me proud to be a Chief. Patrick Mahomes, you are a true leader. For more information on 15 and The Mahomies, please visit the website: https://www.15andthemahomies.org/ and donate toward an incredible cause.
