PHOENIX– Karsten's Ace Hardware, 28220 N. Tatum Blvd., Phoenix, received a very special visit in January from this year’s Ace All-Star, Aiden Morales. The Ace Hardware Foundation named Aiden the second annual National Ace Cares for Kids All-Star in January.
As part of this prestigious recognition, Aiden will become the national ambassador for the Ace Foundation, raising awareness of the excellent work that is done at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.
Local storeowners, Dave and Cheryl Karsten, gave Aiden a tour of the store where he met the team and made a stop at the new paint studio.
As the 2014 Ace Ambassador, Aiden will assist fundraising efforts throughout the year for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Aiden has a big job in front of him and we are here and ready to stand behind [him] and help support his efforts,” said David Karsten.
In addition to serving as an ambassador for the Ace Foundation, Aiden will become the face of the Ace Cares for Kids icon campaign, a national in-store fundraising initiative supported by Procter & Gamble, designed to raise funds at Ace Hardware stores for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
As a proud supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Ace Hardware has been dedicated to raising funds for children’s hospitals all over the country, including Phoenix Children’s. Over the past 22 years, the Ace Foundation has raised more than $58 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
