Beaux Arts raises thousands more than last year

The Beaux Arts Foundation and the College of Design raised $23,000 at its annual Beaux Arts Ball on April 5, up $9,000 from last year’s earnings.

“It’s super exciting,” said Kristi Buchler, director of the Beaux Arts Foundation. “We raised $14,000 last year and $5,000 the year before. It’s definitely an exponential increase.”

Of the earnings, $10,000 will be donated to the Hospital Hospitality House and $10,000 will be given to the Bluegrass Domestic Violence Program, Buchler said. The remaining $3,000 will be put back into the College of Design in scholarship money.
