Video of more than 300 Students at Armando's Real Estate Seminar Sprayed with Hoses and Ice

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Joining the ranks of Jennifer Aniston and George W. Bush, Armando Montelongo, star of A&E's "Flip This House" and CEO of Inc. 500-ranked Armando Montelongo Companies, Inc., has upped the celebrity stakes by hosting the biggest ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to date.

This past weekend, more than 300 participants of Montelongo's real estate seminar were sprayed by hoses pushing out up to 1,000 gallons of water per minute and doused with truckloads of ice in a display of fundraising benefiting the ALS Association.

No stranger to charitable causes, Montelongo recently donated $100,000 and the proceeds of a t-shirt campaign for the San Antonio Spurs with Charles Barkley to Make-A-Wish.

Mr. Montelongo has a stellar track record in building and marketing successful businesses to profitability swiftly, and the mission of the ALS caught his – and the world's – attention. "I believe in the adage that to whom much is given much is expected," said Montelongo. "My drive to teach others the strategies and tactics to build wealth generation through real estate is superseded only by my desire to give back."
