On the 5th March 2020, ACE Projects hosted its first charity fundraiser, and it was a huge success. The dinner, fittingly held at the Queens Tennis Club, had over 100 guests in attendance and was followed by an auction.
We were completely blown away by the generosity of everyone who was there, and we are so proud to see the ACE family come together in such a communal sense.
With this money, we can ensure that all of our projects continue to expand and the local salaries are covered for the whole year. Moreover, we can extend into new favelas with larger outreach projects, ensuring that ACE Projects reach more communities and give them an opportunity to thrive.
We are endlessly indebted to all those who have contributed to ACE, and it is a pleasure to share the progress of our children and the community leaders, who are thriving with your help.
