CEO Soak Poster

Don't choke your boss, soak your boss!

August 2nd, 2018 | PPG Plaza | 11:30am – 1:30pm 

The CEO Soak is a one-of-a-kind event where employees raise money in order to “soak” their boss in the Water Feature at PPG Place. On Thursday, August 2nd 2018, the heads from participating companies or organizations will stand over one of the water feature openings at PPG Place Plaza while the water is turned on. We also invite anyone in the company/organization to attend and watch their boss get soaked for a good cause.
