Activities Benefit Charities!
ACI and its members work year-round to contribute to a better quality of life and support society's efforts to enhance health and well-being through improved hygiene and sanitation. Our time together at the ACI Convention is no different and provides an excellent venue for our industry to demonstrate our commitment to better living.
The ACI Convention hosted three engaging events:
The ACI Charity Duck Race is an event for all attendees that helps benefit Cleaning for a Reason, a 501(c)(3) organization that provides free residential cleaning services to women undergoing treatment for cancer. Special thanks to Shell, the official sponsor of the 2014 Charity Duck Race. Due to the popularity of this year’s new themes and contests for the Charity Duck Race – many participated in the rain to watch their ducks and corporate ducks swim down the Lazy River. Also, new this year -- decorating your organization’s corporate duck or decorating your individual duck, became a hit with participants. Many got to show their creative side! ACI helped Cleaning For a Reason raise $28,845.44, the most ever-raised!
5th Annual Charity Golf Tournament also supports Cleaning for a Reason. Awards were given for the shortest and longest drive, closest to the pin, and First Place Team.
During our Clean the World ONE Project event at Grande Lakes, attendees collaborated to build hygiene kits for disadvantaged people. Kits include bars of recycled soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, a toothbrush, toothpaste, a washcloth and an inspirational message. They will be distributed to organizations serving the homeless in Central Florida.
