Solon Band Raises $1,000 For ALS Bucket ChallengeFriday, August 22, 2014
One bucket wasn't good enough. Solon's four band and Starlettes directors -- Ed Kline, Rob Luce, Mark Mauldin and Kelly Ann Wilson -- ran gauntlets of 100 band students all dumping buckets of ice water to raise awareness and funds for ALS as part of the ice bucket challenge sweeping the nation and social media. The students and band directors raised $1,000 as each student needed to make a $1 donation to dump a bucket.
