ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Event Date: 
Thursday, August 28, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Description: 

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from Sean Libin, Stampede City Kinsmen

So I am inviting all Kinsmen from the Kinsmen Club of the Stampede City and Kinsmen Club of Calgary to participate in a SUPER SIZED ALS ice bucket challenge.

I have secured the donation of a helicopter and a Bambi Bucket and we’re going to do the biggest ice bucket water drop that I’ve seen so far. Then we’re going to challenge all service clubs to get involved.

I’ve attached a quick briefing outlining my vision and thanks to the great folks at Elbow River Helicopters, they are going to help make it happen.

THE CHALLENGE IS TIMING: we need to make this happen one evening THIS WEEK. I am hoping to do this on THURSDAY AUGUST 28 at 8PM at Springbank Airport.

If we gather at 7pm we can get organized and do the drop by 8pm and we’re done. This will be quick, easy and a blast and will certainly go viral when we edit the video.

We expect a good media turn out to this.

Please RSVP to me at sean.libin@delta-mktg.com (subject line OPERATION BAMBI BUCKET) ASAP
