Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce may have left Swifties disappointed by missing Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour stop in Argentina, but his absence was for a good cause. While Swift was captivating audiences in Argentina on November 9, Kelce dedicated his evening to teammate Patrick Mahomes’ third annual 15 and the Mahomies Foundation Gala in Kansas City.
The gala, which featured a silent auction to raise funds, is a charitable initiative aimed at “improving the lives of children.” The foundation supports various causes, focusing on health, wellness, communities in need, and other charitable initiatives, according to its website.
Travis Kelce, who is currently on a bye week with the Kansas City Chiefs, attended the gala and expressed gratitude to the attendees. The Foundation’s Instagram shared a video of Kelce at the event, captioning it with, “@killatrav in the building! Huge thanks for all your support.”
Kelce had teased the possibility of joining Taylor Swift in Argentina during a conversation with his brother, Jason Kelce, on their podcast New Heights. However, his commitment to charitable efforts prevailed, keeping him in the United States.
The NFL star, who had attended a previous Eras Tour stop in Kansas City earlier this summer, still has two more chances to join Swift in Argentina as she performs additional dates on November 10 and 11. The source close to the couple confirmed Kelce’s intention to be present for these upcoming shows.
Travis Kelce’s dedication to philanthropy and supporting initiatives that enhance the lives of children showcases a different facet of his character beyond the football field. While fans eagerly await the possibility of seeing him join Taylor Swift during her international tour, his commitment to making a positive impact remains evident. As the Eras Tour continues to captivate audiences worldwide, Kelce’s presence, when it happens, is sure to add a touch of star power to the already spectacular performances.
