Colorado Oil and Gas Association raised $100,000 on Friday, March 3 at their first annual Mardi Gras Ball, a charity event for Children’s Hospital. The event also honored community impact award winners. Jan Kulmann from Noble Energy won the Individual Community Impact Award, Bonanza Creek won the Small Company Community Impact Award, and PDC Energy won the Large Company Community Impact Award.
The ball was held at the History Colorado Museum, and sold out to over 400 attendees. The event was filled with dinner, dancing, live music, and auction prizes. One of the prizes was a painting crafted by a young artist, 13 year old Anicee Lamoreaux. Anicee has a bone disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, and serves as an ambassador for the Children’s Hospital. Her painting went for an astounding $5,500 at the silent auction. Great job, Anicee! We can’t wait to see more work from you.
Thank you to COGA for hosting the event, noting that all proceeds from tickets to any event sales went directly to Children’s Colorado.
