Despite the pleasure a bucketful of ice may bring to most Arizonans this time of year, there are some in Tucson seeking to raise money for ALS in other ways.

"If you didn't feel like dumping a bucketful of ice water all of yourself last year, you still have the opportunity to join in on some group fun to benefit Arizona's chapter of the ALS Association. On Saturday, Sept. 5, Bite Nite will hit up Tucson for an evening of food, wine and charitable giving.

"Although Bite Nite has been a major fundraiser in Phoenix since 2008, last year was the first time it came to Tucson. In 2014 alone, the Tucson event raised $65,000, selling out to 400 guests. This year, event organizers are anticipating another sellout."--Heather Hoch, the Tucson Weekly
