In case you missed the Community Ice Bucket Challenge at the Orange Country Fair on Saturday, here is a VIDEO of (most of) the event that Mike Muttit videotaped for Orange Live while I took photos.
One by one, starting with Orange Volunteer Firefighters Cristin and Logan, people stepped up to have a bucket of ice water dumped on his or her head in front of the gazebo.
While this was going on, two young ladies walked around and collected money to be donated to Orange resident Mike Mizzone, the father of several children, who recently was diagnosed with ALS.
NOTE: Vin Marino, who spearheaded the fundraising effort said $1,278.92 was raised at the fair. So Far, he’s taken in $4,100 in the past week since he began raising money, and an additional $1,500 has been pledged for the cause.
“Thank you to everyone that participated,” Marino said. “If you would still like to send a donation, checks in any amount should be made payable to SOARING and mailed to 657 Orange Center Road, Orange, CT 06477.”
