Our San Francisco office hosted a Mix & Mingle event to benefit the ACE Mentor Program, one of the five organizations supported by the Lionakis Foundation this year. With 5 vendors and over 40 people in attendance, they were able to raise over $1,100 and counting to be donated to ACE by auctioning off items such as a Bay Sailing Cruise, one year MOMA subscription, Steelcase ottoman, etc. The generous vendors who donated are: Armstrong Ceilings, Armstrong Floorings, Carnegie Fabrics, CPS/Garten Corp., and One Work Place.

ACE is an after school program that introduces students to careers in architecture, construction management, engineering, and other disciplines by teaming them with volunteer mentors who are practicing professionals in their respective field. We have many mentors at Lionakis alone! If you’d like to learn more or get involved, visit www.acementor.org. The Lionakis Foundation has awarded the ACE Mentor Program of the SF Bay Area with a $2,500 grant!
