If you aren't familiar with Chris Gardner's story, you're missing out on a truly inspiring journey. Mr. Gardner overcame homelessness while raising his toddler son to eventually running his own successful stock brokerage firm. In spite of his hardships, he continued to persevere and work hard to achieve a better life and later became a billionaire. He has become a bountiful source of wisdom to motivate working professionals of all levels and all walks of life.
This luncheon explores how to achieve happiness in uncertain times, which is a perfect topic in today's current climate. Participants will also hear from some of ACE’s original scholars and parents and how their lives benefited from this remarkable program. There will also be a recognition of the ACE founders and a special live music performance from national recording artists, The ReMINDers. In light of COVID-19, the ACE Annual Luncheon will be an all-virtual event. Sponsors will receive a special link and access code for the event and the luncheon will be open to all to encourage nationwide networking for all attendees.
ACE Scholarships is honored to have Mr. Gardner speak at their 20th Anniversary Luncheon to continue its mission of helping children in low-income families break away from underperforming schools. When these students get into the private school system, they have a real chance of obtaining success and a life they can be proud of.
