Last call for Polar Plunge

Written by 

Wade, dash, splash or take the full plunge into Lake Junaluska from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23 to help raise money for Haywood Waterways Association.

The Polar Plunge will benefit the annual Kids on the Creek program, which exposes every sixth-grader in Haywood County to an aquatic biology field day in a local stream or river.

Participants will dash from the shore into Lake Junaluska as deep as they can muster. Costumes are encouraged. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers and best costumes.

The suggested donation for plunging is $20 or $5 for students, but plungers are encouraged to solicit donations from others to support their daring deed. Haywood Waterways already surpassed is initial goal of $4,000, raising $4,375 from 106 donors as of Monday.

A hot chili lunch will cost $5 with proceeds benefiting Lake Junaluska Assembly and their work to preserve the lake.
