GUEST OF HONOR
Christl Mahfouz serves as CEO of Ace Specialties, a Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certified business. Founded in Lafayette, LA, Ace Specialties began as a workwear business in 2007 and has evolved into a supplier of customized, American-made promotional products, apparel, and branding services. The same year, Christl helped launch Sky High for Kids nonprofit organization residing as Co-Founder and Board Vice President for ten years. Alongside Founder, Brittany Hebert Franklin, the dynamic duo expanded the organization across five regions in Texas and Louisiana impacting countless lives in the childhood cancer community.
Ace continued to grow and thrive until the economic downturn of 2015 when Louisiana’s oil and gas industry was hit especially hard. While on the brink of losing her business, Mahfouz pitched her merchandising and e-commerce services to the Donald J. Trump campaign team on June 14, 2015. Mr. Trump gave Christl and her company a chance and named Ace Specialties the Official Merchandiser for the Trump-Pence campaign. Ever since, Ace Specialties has continued to grow and flourish, adding clients and professional services and creating new American jobs every year.
Christl was truly an irreplaceable piece to the Sky High puzzle and today, she supports the organization as one of it’s most loyal donors and friend.
Ellie is such a little Doll! You couldn't find a sweeter kid! She is 9 years old, and is always willing to help others. Every afternoon she would walk to my classroom just to see if she could help me with something. I enjoyed this so much, that after I retired, I never forgot the kind heart my little cousin had. One day at our hunting camp, I had a thought, and so I asked her, “would you be willing to donate your beautiful long hair to some child who has cancer”? I could tell she was not sure, so I went on explaining to her how important this job is! These sick children just want to feel beautiful and have some normalcy back in their life. Once I explained, she was definitely willing to donate her hair! As I said before, she has a beautiful heart and I hope this will inspire her to continue to change the world one ponytail at a time. This is going to be a good experience for her and we cannot wait! I have a little feeling this will not be her last hair donation to help the kids at St. Jude - Sherry LaPoint (Aunt Sherry <3 )
I have donated my hair once before and in my experience, donating your hair is a much more personal gift than sending a check. You're sending a piece of yourself to a kid who has a disease that's caused them to lose their hair.
