Pittsfield: Ice bucket challenge raises $31K for ALS

Posted

Over $31,000 was raised for the ALS Association during an ice bucket challenge held at Friends Grille on Aug. 27. The funds raised more than tripled the goal of $10,000.

All proceeds were donated to ALS.net to fund research studies for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The event was held for Carol Monti Nichols, who was recently diagnosed with the disease.
