Comedy Magician and Tropicana headliner Murray SawChuck has taken the “Ice Bucket Challenge” by getting doused with buckets of ice water from wife Chloe Louise Crawford and sidekick Douglas “Lefty” Leferovich to help raise awareness and fight ALS – Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Once a celebrity gets a bucket of ice water dumped on them they can challenge other celebrities to donate $100 to ALS research and continue the chain of challenges.

Murray, who was challenged by Jeff Civillico, challenged several others celebrities in Las Vegas including Carrot Top, Gordy Brown, Lenny Windsor, David Copperfield and Harry Basil.
It has been reported that the ALS Association raised over $1.35 Million dollars in the last two weeks. In they same period last year they raised a little over $20,000 so the challenges are definitely working.
