Chiefs raise $50,000 for tornado victims

RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) _ The Kansas City Chiefs and the N-F-L
raised about 50-thousand dollars to buy new equipment for the
Greensburg, Kansas, high school football team.
The fund-raiser stemmed from a special event dubbed Greensburg
Day, held yesterday at the Chiefs' training camp.
Players were asked to wear Greensburg caps that team president
Carl Peterson handed out. Peterson says he told players the caps
were theirs for a price. He gave them a choice of how much they
wanted to pay.
About 50-thousand dollars was collected.
Most of the south-central Kansas town of Greensburg was wiped
out by a tornado May fourth.
Members of Greensburg's eight-man high school team will be
guests of the Chiefs at the August 23rd pre-season game at
Arrowhead Stadium.
