Sylvania Ace Hardware raising money for Mercy Children's Hospital

Posted: Updated:
SYLVANIA, OH (Press Release) -

The Ace Hardware in Sylvania is helping make miracles happen for the Mercy Children's Hospital.

On July 20 and 21, customers who make a $5 donation at Ace will receive a limited edition 5-gallon bucket and 20 percent off almost everything that they can fit in the bucket. All proceeds from the donations will benefit Mercy Children's Hospital, a local Children's Miracle Network member.

Ace will also have an outdoor booth set up with cotton candy, raffle tickets, and more to celebrate the event.

Mercy Miracle Child Regan Erskine, who battles ulcerative colitis, will be at the event for customers to meet, as well.

"At Sylvania Ace, we're committed to being the helpful place in Toledo, and part of that is our commitment to giving back to the community we serve," said Jim, a store manager. "We're proud to help make miracles happen for children in need, while at the same time providing customers with fun opportunities and incentives for donation."

The bucket promotion was brought to life by Ellie Fontanetta, a 9-year-old who is the face of Ace's 2013 Ace Cares for Kids Campaign. Fontanetta was diagnosed with myelomeningocele, a type of spina bifida, before she was born.

Ace has raised more than $54 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the country since 1991.
