Ace Asphalt Honored as Volunteerism Award Finalist


Phoenix, AZ – Ace Asphalt has been selected as a finalist for the 2008 Volunteerism – The Heart of Business Awards sponsored by Phoenix Business Journal. Ace is one of four finalists in the Most Outstanding Company Project category for medium size businesses (100-499 employees).

Phoenix Business Journal, in conjunction with HandsOn Greater Phoenix (formerly Make a Difference) and AVNET, developed these awards to help bring awareness and recognition to companies making volunteerism a key component to their philanthropic and community affairs programs by utilizing an increasing number of ways to support, encourage, coordinate and facilitate the "giving back" efforts of their employees.

Ace Asphalt was considered and chosen as a finalist for its revamping and beautification efforts at Valley View Elementary School in Phoenix's South Mountain Community. On April 12th of this year, more than 40 volunteers came together to build a human foosball court for the school. Many renovation needs were also met that day including planting trees and shrubs, painting, putting up shelving in classrooms, weeding and mulching flowerbeds and large lawn areas, and placing plaques to alphabetize books in the library. Ace Asphalt also resurfaced and striped the parking lot and bus lanes.

"While revamping the grounds of an underprivileged school is definitely a worthy cause, restoring the spirit of an underprivileged child by providing him a place to play in invaluable," commented Tim Drexler, President and CEO of Ace Asphalt. "Volunteerism taps into the core of the purpose of life and offers an avenue to express one's compassion and mercy towards others."

As a part of this honor, Ace Asphalt will be recognized at an Awards Reception on Thursday, november 20th at the Arizona Historical Society in Tempe. Other categories to be recognized at the Reception include Community Stewardship, Corporate Volunteer Program of the Year, Immediate Need, Most Outstanding Company Project (large & small size companies), Most Outstanding Partnership, Volunteer Executive of the Year, and Volunteer Spirit.

I am very pleased with the final product Ace Asphalt puts out and how well they handle everything – from schedule to barricades.
