Cherry has also contributed to Red Coater volunteer opportunities with the Third-and-Long Foundation, Harvesters, Shadow Buddies and NFL Alumni. In his 53 years as a Chiefs Season Ticket Member, Cherry has missed just five Chiefs home games. Honoring the legacy of the Kansas City Chiefs, Cherry was in attendance at the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions of Founder Lamar Hunt (1972) and QB Len Dawson (1987) in Canton, Ohio.
