Although St. Louis has been quite warm, some of our associates have not been … in fact, they were freezing cold! It all started on Monday, August 25th at our All Company Meeting when, owner and CEO, Mike Peterson announced that he would be completing the Ice Bucket Challenge in honor of his father who passed away forty-three years ago from ALS.
He nominated our Executive Team, and it trickled down from there. All in all, 48 buckets of ice water were poured on Gabriel Group associates and two vendor-partners who were nominated and agreed to participate in the challenge at work. You can watch Mike’s video, in addition to the videos of other Gabriel Group associates, on our Facebook page, here.
In addition to personal donations many of the associates made, Mike informed the company that he would make a $25 donation for each Gabriel Group associate that participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge … Tuesday he donated $1,250 to our local chapter of the ALS Association. Associates had lots of fun watching and participating in this great cause!
