ACE president Dave Altman recently received a letter from Walter Bolliger, expressing Bolliger & Mabillard's thanks for Tim Baldwin's "B&M debuts a new genre" article in the Winter 2012 issue of RollerCoaster! magazine. Enclosed with the letter was a check for $10,000 in support of ACE's activities.
ACE sincerely appreciates this generous donation, which will be split evenly between ACE's Preservation Fund and Museum and Archives Fund. B&M has been an Honorary Corporate Member of ACE since 1997 and had previously made a $10,000 donation to ACE. The company, renowned for its steel coaster installations around the world, has also donated $5,000 for the NRCMA exhibit at Dollywood, which will be open during Coaster Con XXXV in June 2012.
A personal letter of thanks was sent to Bolliger, but we wanted to publically acknowledge B&M's generosity. The B&M organization and their highly regarded products are truly world class.
