Brigantine residents, merchants and visitors always celebrate New Year’s Day with the annual Polar Bear Plunge. It’s a major fundraising effort benefiting Fisher House, a top-rated charity that provides housing and transportation to wounded military members and their families.
Swimmers & spectators regularly raise more than $40,000 each year for Fisher House. The event begins at 11a on New Year’s Day, at the north end of the island. Live music, refreshments and color guard make this event wild and fun too.
The plunge is free and open to the public and officially takes place at noon. Participants are encouraged to wear costumes. Prizes awarded to the best costumes. Jim Craine; Atlantic City’s singing lifeguard, will serve as master of ceremonies. The swim is followed by a post-plunge party.
The Brigantine Polar Bear Plunge hopes you’ll donate to this very worthy cause. Please use this page: FISHER HOUSE … for info & donations.
