Take a Polar Plunge for the Ocean

The 2nd Annual Sons of Ireland Polar Bear Plunge will take place on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2005, and will benefit COA, as well as Teddy’s Fund.  Headquarters for this year’s plunge will be Donovan’s Reef in Sea Bright, NJ, and the plunge will occur at 1pm from the beach directly behind Donovan’s.  Participants should arrive at least 30-minutes early for check-in.  Participants, on-lookers, friends, and family are welcome.


Participants are asked to collect pledges to take the plunge.  Last year, the event raised over $10,000 for the 9/11 Fund for the Education of Monmouth County Children.  This year, there will be prizes for the top fundraisers, as well as for the best plunge attire or lack thereof.


For information and a pledge form, visit or email questions to  The Sons of Ireland is a non-profit association dedicated to the principles of brotherhood, charity, and community service.  The group was founded in 2002 with the specific intent of supporting worthy causes and charities in Monmouth County, NJ.
