Help fund scientific research into the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The Queens Courier and Christie Salon are sponsoring the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Friday, Sept. 12 at 3 p.m.

The challenge will take place at Christie & Co. Salon & Spa, at  23-64 Bell Blvd, in Bayside, and all Bay Terrace Shopping Center employees are invited. Victoria Schneps, publisher of The Queens Courier, will also participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge, and she challenges her readers to come and join in. Donations are welcome and Lois Christie has offered a free blowout at her salon to anyone who participates in the new ritual of pouring freezing water over one’s head in the name of fighting a progressive neurodegenerative disease.

Call The Queens Courier at 718-224-5863 in order to participate.

Lois Christie is not only the founder, president and CEO of the Christie & Co. Salon * Spa in The Bay Terrace, she is also president of Intercoiffure America/Canada.

She and the organization recently hosted the 2011 Fall Atelier, which combined the themes of Hollywood celebrities and red carpet glamour, at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.

“Our members attend the Atelier to meet other owners and artists who are as passionate and driven as themselves,” said Christie. “Certainly, the presentations are superb. But the sharing of knowledge and ideas face to face with leaders like Gina Khan and Vivienne Mackinder is exhilarating.”
