It Begins at Home

Citing Henry Bloch, the Kempers and the Kauffmans, my frenemy at Tony's Kansas City recently noted that "Kansas City loves the 1%." It's an insightful an entirely accurate observation. While I still have to stifle an adolescent urge to key luxury cars with price tags of over $50,000, I venerate the incredibly wealthy people who have invested portions of their time and fortunes into improving the quality of life within our community.

    that's because you're not a car guy, hap. otherwise, most folks who can afford to drive those expensive cars have earned it. some, for sure, buy them for the vanity. some just like driving a well-made, expensive automobile. if i could afford to go from 0 to 60 in under 5 seconds, i would.

    I'm out of the fundraising biz now, so this may have changed, but Kansas City was always #1 or near the top of the list of Most Philanthropic Cities. Per capita, more KC folks make real commitments to charities than any other city in the country. So, at least our 1% is better than their 1%!
