Following the successful Ice Bucket Challenge, the ALS Association Iowa Chapter launched the Bucket Your Boss challenge in 2018. Companies raised money for the ALS Association and with each $500 donated, they could submit one boss to be drenched at the event to raise awareness of the disease.
Through our Charity Jeans Day and supplemental donations, Davis Brown employees raised $2,550 and sent Board Vice-President, Courtney Strutt Todd, former Board member John Pietila, and shareholder Bill Hanigan to be soaked by the Cowles Commons fountains.
Bosses from Meyocks, Iowa Wild, Prairie Meadows, Wells Fargo Advisors, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits and of course, the ALS Association joined in the fun as well. The ALS Association live streamed the event on Facebook.
The mission of the ALS Association is to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest. The Iowa Chapter supports people living with ALS and their loved ones through services and education.
