Not sure you want to plunge?

If you don’t feel like taking a dip into the frozen Lake Washington, there are other ways you can support the Y. πŸ’™πŸŽ‰ Come to the event on February 10th and support the plungers by cheering them on! After the plunging, we will have a silent auction and lunch available to purchase at Westwood Marina Bar and Grill. All proceeds from the auction and lunch will go towards the Y.

P.S. We’re still looking for silent auction items! If you’ve got something cool to donate, click here to email Dustin.

No ice? No problem!

In case we continue with this mild Minnesota winter and there is no ice on Lake Washington come February 10th, we will still have the Penguin Plunge! We’ve got a few ideas to modify the event. So don’t miss out!
