Last year's YP Polar Plunge

For the fifth year, the Lake Martin Young Professionals will host an opportunity to be one of the dozens of risk-takers who charge into the frigid waters of Lake Martin – or simply enjoy the view from the shoreline – all for a good cause.

Lake Martin Dock Company will present the annual YP Polar Plunge on Jan. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Kowaliga Restaurant. This much-anticipated event supports the Lake Martin Resource Association lighted buoy program. Over the years, the YPs have raised around $14,000 to benefit LMRA and its wonderful programs that keep Lake Martin clean, safe and enjoyable.

The featured plunge will take place at noon, and attendees are encouraged to dress in costume. A prize will be awarded to the most creative. Immediately following the plunge, the Dash for Cash will take place where swimmers race out to a buoy and back for the chance to win money.

Live music will start after the plunge and the band will play until 3:30 p.m. Kowaliga Restaurant will serve up a special Polar Plunge menu starting at 11 a.m. There will be a fire pit, s’mores and two cash bars.

Tickets are $20, which includes food, entertainment and the daylong fun. For more information, contact YP president Jacob Meacham at jacob.meacham@alexandercitychamber.com.
