Many people have heard of Lou Gerhig’s disease, but most do not know what it actually is, which is why each of our employees will be stating a fact or statistic about ALS before getting dumped with a bucket of ice water!
Tar Heel Basement Systems will be raising money for the cause in addition to dousing our employees with icy cold water. All t-shirts that our employees wear during their #ALSicebucketchallenge were donated by our amazing partners at GoPostal.
For every THBS employee that takes the Ice Bucket Challenge, our company will donate $5. Our company has the ability to raise $260 with our 52 employees! Our owner, Pete Burgess will also take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge himself if we raise $250. Pete has also announced that because of his big heart and personal connection to individuals affected by ALS, he will match the amount our employees and community raise, up to $500!
We will be holding our final THBS Strikes Out ALS Fundraiser next Saturday, September 6th from 1 til 4 at our office at 2910 Griffith Rd. in Winston-Salem. Everybody is welcome to Join us eat, drink and dump ice water to raise awareness, money and work towards striking out ALS for good.
