The 2018 Penguin Plunge was held in the “calm between the storms” on Sun March 11. An enthusiastic and committed crowd “chilled” in the Hudson River on a beautiful day on behalf of two great local kids with serious illnesses. We had a great turnout, despite the fact that we had to postpone our originally schedule plunge on March 4 due to dangerous river conditions caused by the first of two March Nor’easters.
TeamS from the Tappan Zee Lacrosse Team, the Clarkstown South Vikings, the Rockland County Police Academy, the LIU Graduate School ar RCC and the 50th Birthday Party Plunge for Brad all plunged for this great cause. There was also a challenge between Team Harold Straut and Team Tracey taking Harold Down. Close to 100 hardy penguins charged down the ramp after being entertained by our great DJ, the voice of the Penguin Plunge, Jimmy Schutz and fed with all the delicious food provided by Nyack Hot Bagels, Strawberry Place, Rockland Bakery, Freihoffers, Brooklyn Bread, ShopRite, Chili by Harold Straut and Mike Conklin, and even as far away as the Beer Spot in Fort Lee, NJ!
We want to thank the Rockland County Sheriff’s Dept., the South Nyack Police Dept, the Nyack Fire Dept, the Piermont Fire Dept and the Villages of Nyack and South Nyack for their support!
