Quick Fundraiser to Strike Out ALS

by
Ice Bucket Challenge

In case you’ve been sitting under a rock somewhere the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral the past few weeks and brings awareness to Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. Between July 29 and August 12 the ALS Association raised $4 million in donations, compared to $1.12 million in the same period last year.

Well, we’re very happy to be part of the craze! Saturday we got challenged by Erik Morton of Stars Insider. After a quick conference of the Wardens we’ve decided to have a little fun with it. We’re going to extend the 24 hours a little bit in the interest of getting a few extra dollars to the ALSA.

Here’s where you come in: Donate $10 to the ALSA via their website at http://www.alsa.org/ and we will add a gallon of ice water to the challenge. Simply email wardenjay@starsasylum.com a copy of the receipt and we’ll add it to the tally! Easy as that – want to see Warden Andy swimming in a pool of ice water … well … get donating and don’t forget to send Warden Jay the receipt. And to add a little to the fun, the highest donation will be SAFE from being challenged by Warden Andy.

There it is. Now, head over to the ALSA website and donate today – the ice bucket drops on Monday at 1pm central – you don’t want to miss getting in on this!

About Jay Leask: Jay Leask saw his first Dallas Stars game in 2005 – until then he was a wandering fan of Hockey with no guidance or home team. However, his new friends and this “new” team gave him reason to build an allegiance. He quickly became a season seat holder and fell in love with the arena, the organization, and the players. A fondness for hard work and defensive strategy, Jay became a fan of Philip Boucher and Stephan Robidas. A year later Jay and his friend founded The Dallas Stars Podcast (unaffiliated from the Dallas Stars, though it created relationships that would enable much more) and took on the moniker “The Wall”. Soon thereafter he and his co-host, hoping to cover auditions for the Stars Fanatics for the podcast, became a founding member of the Stars Fanatics and spent three years as the organization’s President before leaving Dallas. Although he no longer can attend games in person he stays connected through his relationships, and of course Game Center Live.
