Malliotakis, Gentile in ALSA Ice Bucket Challenge

Tomorow, August 20 at 11 AM, Council Member Vinnie Gentile, who along with and State Assembly Member Nicole Malliotakis, has accepted the Amyotrophic Laeral Sclerosis Association (ALSA) Ice Bucket Challenge, will host the fundraiser at his new district office at 8018 5th Avenue in Bay Ridge.

How does the ALSA Ice Bucket Challenge work?  Nominated participants have 24 hours to complete the challenge by either donating to ALSA or dumping a bucket of ice water on their heads. Predictably, most nominees choose the donation.

The not-for-profit ALSA raises money for research and patient services, promotes awareness of, and advocates at the state and federal levels on issues related to ALS ("Lou Gehrig's disease.")

Gentile has vowed to make a donation.
