On Friday night, VIDA Fitness hosted an ALS Silent Auction Fundraising Event on the rooftop of its recently opened Penthouse Pool Club at The Yards. VIDA donated 100 percent of event proceeds to Augie’s Quest – a nonprofit research initiative dedicated to finding a cure for ALS. Guests enjoyed food from the Penthouse Pool Club’s new menu designed by DC Top Chef alum Spike Mendelsohn and other area restaurants while browsing the silent auction items from DC area retailers, theaters, sporting venues and restaurants. DJ Alex Kouros spun house tracks accompanied with live performances by the Wizard Girls and the Nationals Racing Presidents. The night’s show stopper was a live auction “Ice Bucket Challenge” where guests bid generous amounts to dump chilled ice on radio personalities Tommy McFly and Kelly Collis, hosts of the popular The Tommy Show.
