334 Plungers Attended Carlyle's Annual Polar Plunge
Area Director Peggy Knebel says a number of prizes were also awarded. "There are levels of prizes based on the money raised so for $75 a plunger gets a hooded sweat shirt. There's a $250 level, and that prize this year was a polar plunge beach towel. There's a $500 level, and that prize this year was a collapsible igloo cooler. There's a $1000 level, and that prize this year was a Columbia Jacket. There are Apple Vacations that are statewide so if you raised $500 you are entered for one drawing in the statewide drawings for the Apple Vacation which I believe this year was Cancun," said Knebel.
Plungers who received $500 or more in donations were entered in a drawing for prizes. They were given an extra incentive to attend and receive plenty of donations as there were prizes such as a 4-night trip to Cancun.
