About ACE SHOOTOUT
For 26 years, Ace Hardware and their vendor partners have joined forces to raise more than $35 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through the Ace Shootout.
The Ace Shootout welcomes celebrity guests to compete in a golf skills competition on the Mauna Kea Golf Course in Hawaii.
The Ace Shootout Champions receive donations in their name for their local children's hospital made possible by the generous sponsorships of Ace Hardware vendors.
Children are at the center of everything we do and building a strong foundation for their tomorrow needs to start today. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals see what the future can be, and with support from Ace Hardware and their vendor partners, we can ensure that it becomes a reality.

About Ace Hardware
We are your local hardware store and we are a part of your community. Ace Hardware has over 5,000 stores around the world with the majority of those stores independently owned and operated by local entrepreneurs. These hard-working men and women are part of the fabric of your community. They are small business owners who are local and loyal... just like it ought to be. While others have become large and impersonal, at Ace, we've remained small and very personal. That's why we say a visit to Ace, is like a visit to your neighbor.
Ace stores come in all sizes and shapes based on the needs of each individual neighborhood. We have small, urban stores, large rural stores and everything in between. Ace stores offer a wide variety of paint, lawn and garden, tools, local niche services and virtually anything you'll ever need to fix, repair and maintain your home. And of course, Ace is most certainly the place with the HELPFUL HARDWARE FOLKS.
Founded in 1924 by a small group of Chicago hardware store owners, Ace changed the retail landscape by allowing individual stores to purchase merchandise in bulk to save money and buy at the lowest possible price. This partnership enabled even the smaller stores to compete effectively at retail despite larger stores in their market. And to this very day, Ace Hardware Corporation is still owned solely and exclusively by the local Ace retail entrepreneurs. For the latest in company news, visit the Ace Newsroom.
