It was a fun and spooky evening as guests, supporters and alumni of Concordance Academy of Leadership gathered at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis for a very special Hallow’s Eve Ball. Most guests came in costume and were greeted by the Ritz decked out in the same spooky style, complete with food, music and dancing Victorian ghosts. Guests enjoyed several raffles including a raffle for a Pearl Necklace, a booze pull, silent and live auction items and more. This even supports Concordance Academy’s mission of reducing reincarceration rates through their re-entry program, featuring areas such as behavioral health and wellness, education and employment, and community and life skills. Starting six months prior to release, this holistic, integrated, evidence-informed program aims to reduce the 77-percent 3-5 year recidivism rate.
