ALS Challenge by VIP

ALS Challenge 8.14¬†VIP Realty Group on Sanibel did the challenge last week. Even though the temp was in the 90’s, it was still a shock to dump ice water on my head! It was for a good cause and we raised some good money which we sent to our local ALS chapter. Thanks to all who donated.
