What 2019 Ace Shootout Host Bill Engvall has to say About the Event This Year

Bill Engvall recently hosted the 2019 Ace Shootout benefiting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Here is what he had to say about his experience:

Well what another wonderful experience being a part of the CMN Hospitals/Ace Shootout. Personally the greatest part of the Shootout is meeting the Ambassadors for CMN Hospitals.  These kids are just great and so much fun to hang out with. 

I have toured many children’s hospitals and have met many children.  I think Mark Bulger summed it up best when he said “these kids are the tough ones”. 

With my involvement in the tournament I have learned so much about how these hospitals provide the necessary treatment and medicines for these children.  I guess my message for the kids would be,” hang in there for the folks at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and all the staff are going to take great care of you.”

I think the thing I love the most about being a part of this team is that nobody gives up.  We are all on the same team and all have the same goal.  I decided to become a part of the CMN Hospitals/Ace Shootout because I want to be a part of something that has a proven track record and is doing something great for the kids. 

My favorite moment of the entire event is listening to the sports celebrities talking about their sports and the struggles that they faced and seeing them interact with the kids.  I hope that I can come back every year and see old friends and make some new ones.

Take care
