WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) -

Hundreds of Whitehouse members were part of the most recent East Texan group to come together to take the ice bucket challenge, and they did it for one of their own.

The group dumped nine thousand pounds of ice and one thousand gallons of water on their heads.

The community-wide ice bucket challenge was to raise money for a local East Texan, David Baskin, who was diagnosed with ALS several years ago. The community has been coming up with ways to raise money for the Baskin Family ever since. 

This ice bucket challenge was their most recent fundraiser.
