LC Polar Bear Plunge

$17,858 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 132 people in 4 months
The ChippenWhales are returning again for another Polar Bear Plunge!  This year we have a goal of $35,000 which will go to Children's Charities of the Midlands.  This is a 501(c)3 charity that has a focus on assisting children with special needs.  Join us on January 19th for this family fun event.  The Matthews Manor (344 harborside Cir, Columbia) will once again be host to a loaded brunch that includes a Bloody Mary bar sponsored by Tito's Handmade Vodka.  The brunch starts off at 9:30am.   For the brave plungers, we will head over to the plunge at 11:30am.  We will return at about 1pm to the sounds of our local favorites, The Blue Pickups.   Carlotta & Boyd Davis from Isagenix will be sponsoring an Isa-Rita bar for the afternoon party.  Please support our efforts to help these kids.  Let's come together and make this another successful year.

Note:  All food and beverages are donated by loving hearts.  100% of your donation (less GoFundMe fees) will reach the charity.  Also, CCofM deducts nothing for their administration costs which is a rare find.  So donate with confidence! 

Offline donations can be sent to:
Gary Matthews
344 Harborside Cir
Columbia, SC 29229
Make checks payable to Children's Charities of the Midlands

$1000 - Killer Whales
