Hempstead, NY (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
Millennium Honda of Hempstead, NY recently took the plunge into the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Aug. 21. For the dealership’s Tom Kharoufa, however, it became more the case of an “Ice Trunk Challenge.”
GM’s from dealerships in the NY Auto Group were nominating each other to take part in the challenge. When Millennium Honda GM Ravel Mejia was nominated and accepted the challenge, he in turn nominated his colleague Kharoufa.
Kharoufa responded by buying 300 pounds of ice from a local deli and loading a car trunk with iced water. The Millennium Honda team then unloaded the trunk’s contents onto Tom’s body lying beneath. Check out his reaction at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=730397156995717&l=6038304862950704963.
The video of Kharoufa’s Ice Bucket Challenge has not gone unnoticed. It has garnered over 1,800 likes on Facebook and has been shared over 600 times. It has been shared by NY ALS’s official Facebook page, which has also shared videos from the likes of Will Smith and Tom Cruise. It was also shared by Power 105.1, as well as by actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
