And the ALS Ice Bucket challenges continue…
If you haven’t yet satisfied your thirst for watching casually-clothed politicians and celebrities douse themselves with buckets of ice-cold water, fear not. State Sen. Kevin O’Toole (R-40) has challenged a fresh round of New Jersey lawmakers to take things to “a new level” with a high noon showdown on the State House steps.
O’Toole — who, after being passed the challenge from his son, Kevin, Jr., will donate $10,000 to the ALS Association — has tapped Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-3), Senator Stephen Oroho (R-24), and Senator Donald Norcross (D-5) to join him in the challenge, which aims to raise awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
“This is Jersey, so I’m raising the stakes,” O’Toole said today. “The Senate President and company can’t worry about their suspenders and suits getting wet. They need to saddle up, bring their checkbooks, go big or go home.”
President & CEO of The ALS Greater New York Chapter, Dorine Gordon, is attending Monday’s challenge to accept O’Toole’s donation.
Sweeney accepted the challenge.
Oroho and Norcross?
