Buckets for ALS



The ALS awareness mania sweeping the nation hit Bellevue Avenue on Tuesday, Aug. 19, as twenty-six employees of Gustave White/Sotheby’s International Realty took the Ice Bucket Challenge one after the other in front of their offices. The challenge raises funds to combat Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects nerve cells in the brain. The affliction hits close to home at Gustave White. David Leys (seated), the eldest brother of Gustave’s principal co-broker Paul Leys, battles ALS and the public challenge was taken in his honor. The team raised $1,000 for Compassionate Care ALS, a nonprofit organization that offers individualized support to those currently living with the disease, their families, and caregivers.
