  • Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC (1888PressRelease) September 17, 2011 - Volunteers of the Ronald McDonald House Charities have become a welcome fixture at each ACN International Training Event. And ACN's recent event held September 9-11, 2011, at Time Warner Cable Arena was no exception. The RMH volunteers collected donations from thousands of generous ACN Independent Business Owners (IBOs), and discussed the families served by the newly opened Charlotte Ronald McDonald House. Their dedication paid off when a check for more than $110,000 was presented to the charity.

    ACN Inc. provides individuals with a business opportunity to offer communications and essential services to residential and business customers. The company was recently ranked #20 on Direct Selling News' list of top 100 direct selling companies in the world. ACN includes charitable giving at each of its quarterly training events and named The Ronald McDonald House Charities as its official global charity in 2008.

    "It is so wonderful to be considered a part of ACN's Family," Mona Johnson-Gibson, Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte, said. "Each time we go to ACN's events we are welcomed with open arms. It is their constant dedication that the families who use the Ronald McDonald House are in need of."

    Through its work with ACN Global Reach Charities, ACN has committed to donate $2 million to the Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte. The house, which opened in May 2011, is serving families of children being treated at Levine Children's Hospital and Presbyterian Healthcare's Hemby Children's Hospital.

    "We are truly honored to be working with such a selfless charity," ACN President and Co-Founder Greg Provenzano said. "We enjoy having our IBOs in our hometown - not only do they benefit from the phenomenal training and announcements from our event, but they get the chance to visit our backyard and see the outstanding impact they have had in our community. We want to continue to do great things for Charlotte and having events in our hometown helps us with that goal."

    The generosity of ACN IBOs at the International Training Event surpassed the amount raised during ACN's previous Charlotte Event: ACN raised more than $102,000 for the charity in February 2011. Learn more at
