TDFC Summer Classic 2016
On July 9, 2016, the Tartan Devils Football Club (TDFC), a Pittsburgh-based soccer club, hosted their annual Summer Classic picnic. As an event sponsor, ACE helped to rent a soccer field, pavilion, and playground for attendees, along with equipment for all sorts of races, children events, and prizes. In addition to promoting their passion for soccer, the organization, including ACE’s John Battersby, is active in raising money for local charities. This year’s picnic raised over $1,500 for Pittsburgh Action Against Rape. Our thanks go out to the TDFC for inviting ACE to participate in and sponsor this great event.
Big For A Day
On July 8, 2016, ACE’s Cedrick Crosby and George Ikonomou partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston and United Way of Greater Houston for Big For A Day. Big For A Day events allow corporate volunteers the opportunity to be a Big Brother or Big Sister for a day. They give volunteers a way to learn more about mentoring and provide positive adult role models to those children still waiting to be matched. July’s event took place at The Museum of Health in Houston, TX and involved volunteers from ACE, ConocoPhillips, FMC Technologies, and Hess Corporation. The day included guided tours and hands on lab experiments such as extracting DNA from food samples and identifying microorganisms under a microscope. Our thanks goes out to all for a great time!
