ACE BALL 2020 

Thursday’s virtual ACE Ball was a unique celebration that recognized the dedication of our mentors and celebrated the successes of this past season.   

On this evening, we celebrated our mentors and acknowledged their impact on our students. 

We kicked off the evening with virtual cocktail making where attendees were treated to a live drink making sessionACE GNY Mentor Committee members Ginnie Demske (Mentor Committee Chair)Chris Scotti (Co-Vice Chair), Amr Mohammed (Co-Vice Chair) and Kathryn Chiarelli (Social Chair) each demonstrated how to prepare a drink. 

We announced the 2020 ACE GNY Mentor of the year, Ben Miller of Gilbane Building Company, celebrated Jeffrey Messinger’s (of STV) ENR Mentor of The Year award, and recognized ACE GNY Team 30 (AECOM) for winning the 14th Annual CIRT National Design & Construction Competition. 

In addition to these incredible successes, we celebrated a record year for ACE GNY in which had almost 1,200 student participants and over 650 mentors; we also highlighted our mentors and their firms, and shared some sweet memories of teams and students from this year and congratulated our mentors on quickly transitioning to virtual sessions and final presentations due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  

Over mentors came together to celebrate the end of an unprecedented season, connecting over all that was accomplished this year.
