On Friday, March 6, 2020, in the iconic Chicago Hilton Grand Ballroom, the Chicago ACE Mentor Program will hold its annual luncheon, celebrating 20 years of mentoring and supporting of Chicago high school students who have an interest in architecture, construction, and engineering. This unique event brings together over 700 leaders in these fields, along with civic and education leaders from throughout the city, to support the future of our workforce.
Twenty years ago, in its first year, ACE awarded $7,000 in scholarships. Two decades later, $200,000 in scholarships is awarded each year. As we celebrate our 20th Anniversary, we also celebrate awarding over $2 million in scholarships since our inception. The money raised at the luncheon directly supports these renewable four-year college scholarships that are awarded to ACE students each year.
With your support of our 20th Anniversary Luncheon, we will continue to evolve, creating opportunities for students who would not otherwise consider careers in architecture, engineering, and construction, and build the foundation of tomorrow’s industry leaders.
Please join us on March 6, 2020 for our 20th Anniversary Luncheon.
