Ace Hardware has announced that Mike Frattallone, co-owner of Frattallone’s Ace Hardware, has earned two separate awards for his dedication to philanthropy.
The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a charity that raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals, has named Frattallone its “Local Corporate Person of the Year.” He will be presented the national award at the charity’s 31st annual Momentum event in November.
Additionally, Frattallone is the recipient of the inaugural Ace All-Star Retailer award. Announced at the Ace Hardware Fall Convention in Orlando, this award is given by Ace Hardware Corporation and the Ace Hardware Foundation. The award will recognize one Ace retailer annually for his or her fundraising, leadership skills, innovation and commitment to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Frattallone was selected for his contributions to Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. Frattallone’s Ace Hardware, owned by brothers Mike and Tom Frattallone and their father Larry Frattallone, has 19 locations throughout Minnesota.
