Bakersfield, Calif. - The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge came to Bakersfield, and the people at the center of it were faculty and students from Rosedale Middle School.
Students from the middle school came up with the idea of raffling tickets to win an opportunity to douse their teachers and other school faculty members.
The school raised more than $100 for ALS research.
The opportunity was a little too much for some to pass up, as some students bought as many as 18 raffle tickets.
Donations will be open until next Wednesday, August 27th, and will go to the local ALS chapter.
