Yonkers, NY – Mayor Mike Spano and City Council President Liam McLaughlin joined Empire City Casino and Yonkers-native Pat Quinn to announce that the third annual ALS Ice Bucket Challenge will be held on Saturday, August 5th at Empire City Casino. The free festivities, music and family-friendly entertainment will begin at 1:00 p.m. trackside in anticipation of hundreds of participants simultaneously dumping ice-water over their heads.
The reason: to support Quinn, one of the co-founders of the global phenomena Ice Bucket Challenge, and reignite the social media movement to once again go viral throughout the month of August to benefit ALS research.
