CEO Soak Registration is Open!

Don’t choke your boss—SOAK your boss and raise money for ALS. Join us for the CEO Soak, to be held on Thursday, August 3rd from 11:30-1:30 PM at PPG Place Plaza Fountains. Over the next two months, employees of participating companies will raise money in order to see their boss get soaked by the fountains on August 3rd. Companies may designate anyone they wish as the “soakee” (CEOs, presidents, board members, etc.)
