Kolbeco Supports Barat Academy Heart Ball

Kolbeco Supports First Annual Barat Academy Heart Ball
February 18, 2008

On February 16, 2008, Kolbeco was pleased to support Barat Academy at the school’s first annual Heart Ball. The event raised over $150,000 for its “From the Heart” campaign to build financial aid funds for the school to ensure accessibility for all students.

The “From the Heart” campaign was begun as the result of last year’s tuition donation, given by a St. Charles County family, which enabled Barat’s founding freshman class to attend tuition free. The gift was given along with a call to action to the community to continue the spirit of the gift, and to enable students from all backgrounds to attend Barat Academy regardless of their economic situation.

The 2008 Barat Academy Heart Ball was attended by over 260 people. KolbeCo was joined by clients Network 1, Highland Homes, Straighline Technology Group, Creative Anvil, and Commercial Brokerage Group, as well as Mayor Pam Fogarty of Dardenne Prairie and her husband Ron.
