Big Water Marina and Campground in Starr, S.C., will host an annual polar bear plunge into Lake Hartwell to raise awareness and funds for the Anderson County Red Fez Shrine Club, according to a press release.
Organizers hope to beat previous years’ fundraising efforts and generate a strong sense of community during the day’s event.
The day will kick off at 9 a.m. with day-of registration and check-in for the polar bear plunge, and the participants will plunge into Lake Hartwell at 10 a.m. Registration for the polar bear plunge is $30, and the event is open to the public. Any interested participants may visit the link for the event waiver below and send a completed version, along with registration payment, to AndersonRedFez@Gmail.com.
All polar plungers will receive a complimentary t-shirt and medal to commemorate the event.
As an additional contribution from Big Water Marina and Campground, there will be a raffle for a free half-day pontoon rental. Anyone attending or participating in the event is eligible to participate in the raffle by purchasing tickets for $1/each. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Anderson County Shrine Club, and more event details can be found by visiting the Facebook event page linked below.
