Local Ace Hardware owners

recognized for CMN fundraising

The Ace Hardware stores in Rockport and Port Lavaca, which are owned by Phil and Barbara Salemi, raised $53,121.02 for the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) through various fundraising efforts in 2018.

“We raised the money a number of different ways, from asking customers if they wanted to round up their ticket to the nearest dollar (with the difference donated to CMN), through bucket sales, and even candy promotions,” said P. Salemi.

The Rockport and Port Lavaca stores ranked second in the multi-store (two to four stores) retail category, behind only a two-store group located in Salt Lake City.

Duracell made a $10,000 donation in each winning retailer’s name to a CMN hospital in the retailer’s service area.

The local $10,000 gift is split between Driscoll Children’s Hospital (for the Rockport store), and Texas Children’s Hospital (for the Port Lavaca store).

The local Ace Hardware owners are pleased with the second place finish in their category.

“We’re one of the smallest markets on the list,” said P. Salemi.

Growing up in Memphis, in the shadow of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, P. Salemi is familiar with the great care provided by children’s hospitals.

St. Jude’s primary focus is children’s cancer, according to P. Salemi, but CMN-affiliated hospitals focus on other childhood diseases.

Every year Ace corporate picks an Ace All-star. That child helps Ace Hardware promote fundraising efforts for CMN hospitals.

Collectively, Ace Hardware stores raised more than $14 million last year for CMN.

The last wedding I went to for 200 people there were 5 large tables of all-you-can-eat food and all-you-can-drink free alcohol. Way over the handfuls of food we should be eating. Christmas time is always a gutbuster, and Easter and Halloween are candy-based foods. Gluttony is en vogue these days. The

    Delta Prime This is what is actually happening. A great percentage of the weight lost during the early phase of virtually any weight loss program is mostly due to water loss from body tissues because water forms part of every single cell in the human body. In fact, fat-free mass is 70-75% water, and body fat is just about 10-40% water.
