Who can participate?

1. The Soakee - This is the designated company executive who will get soaked by getting a bucket of water poured on them.
2. The Soakers - These are the employees who donate and raise money to see their "Soakee" get soaked.

Can I send checks/cash?
Yes. Any checks collected can be mailed to: The ALS Association at the address below in the footer of the web page. Please write a check or money order for any cash. Include your name and company name with the check so it can be credited accordingly. All checks mailed will be entered onto your fundraising page within a few days of receipt.
Once I donate, where does my money go?
All donations to the CEO Soak go directly to helping those living with ALS in the greater Sacramento area. Donations help The ALS Association provide free services to individuals living with ALS such as: healthcare consultations, educational programs, medical equipment loans, assistive technology loans, transportation, and financial support. For example, your donation could provide a power wheelchair free of charge to a local individual living with ALS through our Equipment Loan Program.
