To help celebrate the franchise’s 60th season in 2019, the Kansas City Chiefs presented the Lamar Hunt Legacy seat at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. For each home game, the club selected a winner who embodied the spirit of Lamar Hunt and represents the four pillars of the chefs’ mission: to win with character, to unite our community, to inspire our fans and to honor tradition. After being forced to skip recognition due to reduced capacity in 2020, the club are now using the Lamar Hunt Legacy seat to specifically honor a Chiefs Season Ticket member at every home game. The two golden seats are located in section 121 of the lower bowl, symbolically positioned as Lamar Hunt’s name in the team’s ring of honor.
This week’s Lamar Hunt Legacy seat winner is 30-Year Season Ticket Member Mitzy Graybeal. Graybeal has been a 10-year Red Coater Chiefs who served as Captain of Red Coater Community Events for two years and Chief Captain for the past four. She also hosts a monthly “kitchen for the kids” at Ronald McDonald House Charities in Kansas City, cooking meals for families with children receiving medical care at local hospitals.
