|CELEBRATION OF SHRINKAGE - 2016
|15th ANNUAL: LPBC POLAR PLUNGE
What a day for a Plunge into Lake Michigan! It was a high of 49 Degrees with a lot of
sun and beautiful beach conditions. There was great news coverage from WCIU (the
U), WGN and CBS. We had 300+ polar bears jump in the lake with us and we have
raised $24,000 and counting.
500+ photos have now been posted on our Facebook page, so go check them out.
We'd like to thank Josh Kotowski & Tony Toto for providing us with so many great
photos of everyone. Please share your great photos on our FB page as well.
We'd also like to say thank you to all our Sponsors, Volunteers and most importantly,
our donors and participants. Through a ridiculous event and everyone's amazing
generosity, we are able to support 2 wonderful, local families to show them that there is
a great community here to lend a helping hand.
As we continue receiving donations, we'll provide a final tally on the number of Polar
Bears and fundraising over the next 1-2 weeks and share the good news. We just want
to say thank you to everyone and we can't wait to make the 2017 Plunge even better.
