BUCKEYE LAKE, Ohio – As the Winter months continue, area residents will have an opportunity to raise money for the United Way of Muskingum, Perry, and Morgan Counties by taking a frigid plunge. The Polar Plunge will be held at Buckeye Lake later this month and proceeds will benefit the 28 programs maintained by the local United Way. Kyle Dunn, with the United Way of Muskingum, Perry, and Morgan Counties, says there is one important step in the online registration process.
“The Polar Plunge is coming up on January 26th and if anyone wants to get involved with it, they can go online to Buckeye Lake Winery; and go to the Polar Plunge section—and they can actually register their team. You just click it and you register your team—and if you are from Muskingum, Perry, or Morgan Counties make sure when you register that you click ‘Perry County’.”
No matter how cold it may be, the Polar Plunge will be taking place this January and is being hosted by the Buckeye Lake Winery. There are two ways to donate through the Polar Plunge—by paying the $30 registration fee or by setting a fundraising goal within your company or organization.
“Whatever the temperature is, whatever the temperature of the water is…you are jumping in. They call it ‘freezin for a reason’ and so you’re donating money, getting really cold for your local United Way. There are various teams and they are fundraising internally to get one member of their team to jump in.”
The Polar Plunge will be held at the Buckeye Lake Winery from 11 AM to 4 PM on January 26th. For more information or to register, visit www.buckeyelakewinery.com.
