RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - Sep 12, 2014) - Staff at the Residence Inn Raleigh Crabtree Valley, a hotel in Raleigh, North Carolina, participated in the viral Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit ALS.

During the hotel's employee lunch on Friday, August 22nd, staff members ventured out to the pool and doused themselves in icy water to raise awareness and money for ALS. Other staff members, including several new hires, guests, and a representative from the local ALS Association were on hand to watch the hotel staff get drenched. The hotel staff then challenged several neighboring hotels to take the Ice Bucket Challenge.

In addition to participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for the illness, the business hotel donated to ALS, a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. If you would like to make a donation to the local ALS chapter, please follow the attached link. http://webnc.alsa.org/goto/crashcrew15
