We’re excited to share the successes of some our partners recent campaigns!

Ace Hardware

We’d like to thank the Shor Family and their Ace Hardware Stores for raising nearly $25,000 in 2015 for CMN Hospitals. Their stores are among the top 10 fundraising stores and one of the top 5 fundraising chains in the country.  In recognition of their outstanding fundraising efforts, Proctor and Gamble made an additional donation of $20,000 to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.  A heartfelt thank you to Bob, Susan, Ilana and the entire Shor Family as well as the dedicated employees at their stores for their unwavering support of CMN Hospitals and Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
