Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill hosted his second annual charity basketball game at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kansas City on Friday night. All the proceeds from the event benefitted the Hill Foundation’s Cheetah Scholarship Fund.
Several of Hill’s teammates, including fellow wide receivers Gehrig Dieter and Marcus Kemp, linebacker Anthony Hitchens, defensive tackle Chris Jones, safety Tyrann Mathieu and defensive tackle Khalen Saunders, participated in the event.
Friends of-the-site Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest, Harold Kuntz of FOX4, Aaron Ladd of 41 Action News and Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star were on the scene to provide the sights and sounds:

And the second-best news of the evening (only behind the money being raised) is that it appears nobody got hurt ahead of Kansas City’s training camp.
Hill’s foundation’s mission is “to provide positive growth for single-parent households and at-risk youth in the Kansas City community.”
