The Tallgrass Film Festival, one of the favorite arts traditions in the Wichita community, kicks off in and around downtown Wichita for the 13th consecutive year on October 14 and lasts through October 18. The largest film festival in Kansas, Tallgrass is known internationally and offers a great opportunity for Wichitans to not only see some great films they might not see otherwise, but also meet filmmakers and experience an event on par with some of the great film festivals in large cities across the world!
Founded in 2003 by the late Timothy Gruver, the Tallgrass Film Festival is a program of the non-profit Tallgrass Film Association, an organization dedicated to entertaining, educating and enlightening audiences in America’s Heartland. They do this by showcasing the very best of independent cinema in a variety of Wichita area venues. Many long-time Wichitans don’t know about the great arts community here at our fingertips. The Tallgrass Film Association is out to get you more involved and to make sure that people nationwide know about the great talent here in Kansas!

Davis-Moore is proud to be donating $50 to United Way for every vehicle we sell in September! If you have been thinking about buying a new or pre-owned vehicle, there is no better time than now. Let’s face it, $50 per vehicle adds up fast. We take great pleasure in supporting the Wichita community and United Way! Many of our employees contribute to United Way through payroll deduction programs or employee sponsored events— and $50 per vehicle donated to United Way is just one more way we can show our support of those in need here in Sedgwick County.
The mission of United Way of the Plains is to serve Sedgwick County and the seven surrounding counties in South Central Kansas. They focus on three important building blocks that make life better for all of us: Education (helping children and youth achieve their potential), income (promoting financial stability and independence) and health (improving people’s health through ready access to health care and health education).
In addition to raising and distributing funds, United Way forms partnerships with schools, government, nonprofits and companies, matches volunteers to needs and collect and distributes in-kind gifts. Through a service called 2-1-1 of Kansas, United Way of the Plains provides an easy-to-remember, toll-free number that can connect people with important community services and with the many volunteer opportunities available.
There are so many ways that you can help; the possibilities are endless! We can do this TOGETHER! Visit the United Way website for more information.
Davis-Moore Autogroup received the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Integrity Award at an award ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Wichita on Thursday, August 20, 2015. These awards focus on demonstrated ethical business practices with key stake holders including customers, employees and communities at large, rather than a company’s growth, profitability or popularity. The Integrity Award Winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges consisting of Wichita business leaders and members of the academic community.
“BBB’s Integrity Award Winners have shown that ethics and integrity are core values of their organization,” said Jim Hegarty, president and chief executive officer of Better Business Bureau, Inc. serving Nebraska, South Dakota, The Kansas Plains and Southwest Iowa. “The 2015 BBB Integrity Award Winners join an elite group of organizations that realize dealing fairly and honestly with employees, customers and partners are central to profitability and growth. They serve as role models for all businesses in Kansas, and the Better Business Bureau Foundation is pleased to honor them with this prestigious award.”

The Kansas Humane Society is a private, non-profit organization that provides care and services for nearly 18,000 animals each year from citizens unable or unwilling to care for them. They receive no local or state tax dollars, United Way funding, or support from the Humane Society of the United States and depend entirely on private donations and adoption fees. Their mission is to set the standard in care and adoption services for pets while educating the community in the ethical and responsible treatment of companion animals. They have a vision of ending the euthanasia of all adoptable animals in our area.
Sign up today to help Wichita’s homeless animals. Every donation allows the Kansas Humane Society to provide vital care and services for thousands of pets and people in the Wichita area. Visit the Kansas Humane Society website to help them reach their goal for Woofstock 2015!
