ICE BUCKET BASH

Friday, November 15, 2019
Marriott St. Louis Grand, 800 Washington Ave, St. Louis, MO 63101

Join us Friday, November 15 at the Marriott St. Louis Grand and celebrate the five year anniversary of the Ice Bucket Bash and the national phenomenon that put ALS in the public eye and inspired this event, the Ice Bucket Challenge! You won't want to miss this energetic, ice-themed party that puts St. Louis celebrities in the hot seat and under a bucket of icy cold water. Ice Bucket Bash attendees will experience fun, interactive elements for guests to explore. Enjoy frosty signature drinks and a three-course meal suitable for any ice queen or king! All funds raised from this event will support critical programs that improve the quality of life for people and families living with ALS. Among the challenges that come with ALS is the struggle to continue everyday activity in the same way people affected by ALS have done their whole lives up until their diagnosis. With your support, we can change their entire experience with ALS.
