The following is a list of fun and educational events we have planned at Bibens Ace throughout the year to bring the community closer together and share all that we have to offer.  Throughout the year we plan cookouts and demos, free workshops for kids, “Ladies Nights,” and special sales events, offering fun for the whole family.  Don’t miss the great raffles sprinkled in throughout the year, too; you just may win your very own grill, a supply of stain to bring your deck from drab to fab, or tickets to a prized sporting event.  You never know what’s around the corner!

And as giving back is the bedrock of Ace Hardware and the founding philosophy of Bibens Ace, giving back to charity is always a highlight of what we do.  Whether it’s a local food drive, our annual Children’s Miracle Network Bucket Sale, or a donation jar at a cookout, each event not only seeks to strengthen the tight knight communities that we serve, but to raise awareness and capital for so many exceptional charitable organizations.
