On Wednesday, August 27th, partners and staff gathered to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge. Managing Partner David Levy was joined by partners Neil Sacks, Michael Henry, Adam Wagman and Renée Vinett, donating $1000 to ALS Canada.
Paying it forward, we challenged Gary Weddel of Elements LLP, Ian Wollach of Collins Barrow, and Jackie Bloom of Spinal Cord Injury Ontario.

The Ice Bucket Challenge

While a great cause, we do caution others who participate in this challenge to do so safely.
