Two dozen McAfee & Taft attorneys and employees — including 14 from the firm’s Aviation Group — braved the chill of the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for ALS and Team Polk. Team Polk was established by the family of senior aviation attorney Frank Polk in memory of his brother, Dr. Douglas Polk.

Taking the plunge from the firm’s Oklahoma City office were: Brian Beatty, JD Brown, Joel Bulleigh, Malinda Caldwell, John Chubbuck, Brandy Dunn, Teena Dunn, Jeri Fatheree, Maria Gonzalez, Debby Jones, Barrett Knudsen, David Laurent, Scott McCreary, Shannon Mercer, Frank Polk, Sharon Selby, and Erin Van Laanen.

Team Polk volunteers from Tulsa were: Stephanie Candy, Sherri Dawson, Anna DeShazo, Jessica Dickerson, Matt Kessler, Michael Smith and Alison Verret.
