Small businesses are foundational to our community, and there's almost nothing they can't provide for the people of Kansas City. We all recognize the challenges our small, local businesses have endured this year—so if you're able and looking to spend money this weekend, I challenge you to support five local businesses and complete at least one row of BINGO.
