Ocean State Job Lot CEO Marc Perlman gladly accepted the ALS #IceBucketChallenge today, choosing to both get doused and to donate $10,000 from Job Lot to the ALS cause. That’s the same amount as Charlie Sheen! The amount covers all 114 Job Lot stores. Marc called out Bill Hatfield, Rhode Island president of Bank of America, Ned Handy, president of Washington Trust Bank, the Rhode Island Association of Fire Chiefs, and Peter Griffin of Family Guy, who each have 24 hours to complete the challenge. Thanks to Nick, Ron and Pete at Cardi’s Furniture for nominating Marc.
