TMP goes under the buckets for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

August 27, 2014

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge viral campaign is sweeping the nation, making its reach into both the music instruments and pro-audio industry. TMP’s Director of Operations, Samantha Pink, TMP’s V.P. of Operations, John Hennessey, and nine other employees accepted the challenge yesterday afternoon. Several employees were on hand to dunk ice buckets on the challengers. Video and photography was shot on the lawn at TMP’s headquarters in Berlin, CT.

  

 

Samantha Pink is seen first in the video, thanking Mark Nash, president of Full Compass for nominating her and Music People. Pink then nominated Perry Celia at QSC Audio Products, Abby Kaplan at Shure, and Michael Cleary at Sennheiser.  Hennessey dedicated his ice bucket to his aunt Eileen Prendergast, who recently passed away from ALS, and nominated QSC president Joe Pham.  Other people and organizations nominated by TMP’s employees included Sean Estella from Richard Dean associates, everyone at the SimplexGrinnell District Office, Dan Ferrissi and crew at Music & Sound Retailer, the team at Jireh Supplies, Mike Sabol from MahoneySabol CPA & Advisors,  Walter Welsh from SSJR, Mike Kane at American Musical Supply,  Dave Henderson at D.L.Henderson Company Inc, James Sajeva at KORG and Justin Wright at Music & Arts.

The Ice Bucket Challenge campaign has raised over 50 million dollars toward research to find a cure for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The Music People will be making a monetary donation to ALS, and will also match donations from its employees.  The full video can be seen on TMP’s facebook page.
