Supervisor Joseph Saladino announces that the Town of Oyster Bay will serve as home to The Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County’s (CP Nassau) 16th Annual Polar Bear Plunge benefit fundraiser on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, Beach and Marina in Oyster Bay, with festivities to begin at noon and the plunge at 1pm.
“The Town of Oyster Bay is proud to serve as home this Polar Bear Plunge as it supports the Cerebral Palsy Association and their many outstanding programs and services. I invite everyone to come out of winter hibernation and join us in this fun and unique plunge into north shore waters. The water may be cold, but the cause is certain to warm your heart,” said Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino, who was named the Honorary Chairman of the event.
The Polar Bear Plunge festivities will include a DJ, free hot chocolate, coffee, tea, hot dogs, and soup. Raffles will be offered, and children will enjoy many other surprises including Star Wars characters and a dancing Polar Bear. An indoor assembly area will also be available. The event will be held rain, snow or shine!
All proceeds will benefit the more than 1,800 children and adults with disabilities who participate in programs and receive services through the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County. CP Nassau has been making a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities since 1948.
