SAVE Inc. supplement
It has been our pleasure to work for several years now with the good people of SAVE Inc., which provides housing solutions for socially and medically disadvantaged people in Kansas City. We hope you enjoy our special supplement in the back of the print issue, with its own special SAVE Inc. cover.
We’re celebrating the agency’s annual HomeComing event on Nov. 7 called “The Velvet Underground” at Studio Dan Meiners, 2500 W. Pennway St., Kansas City, Mo. This will be a great night of fabulous food, cocktails and creative attire, plus a silent auction, all benefiting SAVE. To purchase tickets ($60 in advance, $65 at the door) and see more details, go to Homecoming.
