Vincent Gentile takes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
It’s a good thing Councilmember Vincent Gentile didn’t wear a suit to work on Wednesday. He got soaking wet!
Gentile (D-Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights-Bensonhurst) took part in the summertime phenomenon known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Wednesday morning outside his Fifth Avenue District office. Doing the honors were Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis (R-C-Bay Ridge-Staten Island) and Arlene Rutuelo, owner of Nordic Delicacies on Third Avenue. Both women had issued the challenge to Gentile.
For good measure, Malliotakis put an ice cube down Gentile’s back before pouring a bucket of ice water on his head as a “trial run.”
The two women took turns dousing Gentile, first Rutuelo poured the water on the councilman’s head, then it was Malliotakis’s turn.
