ALPHA MEDIA Country WUBB (BOB 106.9)/SAVANNAH, GA morning personality TIM LEARY is not afraid to look foolish for a good cause. LEARY challenged WSAV-TV/SAVANNAH morning news anchor DAVE KARTUNEN to "The Blue Icee Challenge" to help draw attention to KARTUNEN's current charitable effort.
KARTUNEN is attempting to raise $5,000 for the BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF SAVANNAH by FRIDAY, AUGUST 29th. If he hits his goal, KARTUNEN will dye his hair blue, the official color of the BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB, for television.
LEARY and KARTUNEN met at a local convenient store to see who could hold their head under the blue raspberry Icee tap the longest while continually drinking the frozen beverage.
"I will tell you, I have never experienced a brain freeze like that ever in my life," said LEARY. "My lungs actually froze up a little. The worst was having to clean blue Icee out of my ear!"
The challenge has brought extra attention to KARTUNEN's campaign. He is currently at $1,500 of his $5,000 goal, with 22 days remaining.
