Chester, WV (August 28, 2014) – Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort’s general manager Chris Kern and the executive team of directors accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge and were doused by gallons upon gallons of ice and water dumped onto them from a front-loading tractor today.
The executive team donated $1,050 to the ALS Association after this unique adaptation of the viral ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that left them soaking wet.
The group accepted the challenge and met their fate with the front-loading tractor full of ice and water on Tuesday morning. Kern addressed viewers and sent the challenge forward to Mountaineer’s corporate office members, including MTR Gaming’s President and CEO Joseph Billhimer, as well as the members of Hancock County Board of Health.
Participants of the executive team who participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge include Chris Kern, General Manager; Jody Madigan, Assistant General Manager; Garth Wilcox, Senior Director of Property Management; Jason Pugh, Director of Slot Operations; Jim Shuler, Director of Hotel Operations; Jim Dunlap, Director of Surveillance; Lesley Campbell, Director of Marketing and Public Relations; Mary Lou Pietranton, Executive Administrative Assistant; Nick Mavromatis, Director of Player Development; Rose Mary Williams, Director of Racing; and Vince Azzarello, Director of Human Resources. Also contributing to the donation are John Chill, Director of Finance and John Murphy, Senior Director of IT.
The group of 13 executive managers were called out to participate in the challenge by Scioto Downs Racino, Mountaineer’s sister property located in Columbus, Ohio.
