Just as the thermometer starts to drop and furnaces click on, every student at Centennial Elementary School in Harrison School District 2 has a new winter coat.

The seventh annual Koats 4 Kids on Oct. 4 brought in 543 warm, colorful wraps.

Koats 4 Kids, at The Mining Exchange, treated 400 guests to wine and a buffet, with music by students from The Colorado Springs Conservatory.

A record-breaking $11,798 was raised for The Colorado Springs Conservatory Scholarship Fund from the auction and door prizes.

Koats 4 Kids was organized in 2007 and has provided new coats for students in different elementary schools each year: Helen Hunt (D-11), Aragon (D-8,) Will Rogers (D-11), Oak Creek (D-3), Pinello (D-2) and Evans (D-49).

The committee putting together the 2013 benefit: Jen Furda, Tina Dewar, Denise Schall, Caryn Becker, Cathy D'Agostino, Courtney Olson, Ed Doerffel, James Dodd, Linda Weise, Sara Muirheid, Susan Hirst, Tammy Mondragon and Madeleine Mellini.
