CONCORD, NC, September 4, 2013 – The tradition of giving continues at ACN, Inc, the world’s largest direct seller of telecommunications, energy and other essential services for residential and small business customers. On Tuesday, August 20, 2013, during the Ronald McDonald House Charities International Convention, ACN was recognized as being a Signature Partner, a recognition reserved only for partners who donate between $500,000 and $1 million annually to the charity. ACN was one of only three companies to receive this recognition.
In 2008, ACN named Ronald McDonald House Charities as the company’s global charity – with overall donations today climbing into the millions. The heart of ACN’s giving lies in the company’s International Training Events. During each of these events around the world, ACN collects donations and then matches those donations dollar for dollar, presenting a check to the local chapter of the Ronald McDonald House at the close of the event. In addition, ACN hosts an annual celebrity golf tournament with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte, the hometown of ACN’s World Headquarters. The 2013 tournament raised over $214,000 for the organization.
“At ACN, helping children is very close to our hearts, so it’s an honor to work with an organization whose purpose is to provide families with the care and support they need during their darkest hours. It’s a humbling experience,” said ACN Chairman and Co-Founder Robert Stevanovski.
