A project of GREAT RIVER HOMES INC
If you've been dreaming about plunging into the icy cold Mississippi River to support a good cause, this event is for you!
The 5th annual “Grumpy Plunge” is scheduled for Saturday, February 23, 2013. Spectators attending previous “Grumpy Plunges” have enjoyed quite a show. Many folks braved the cold and came out to cheer on the plungers and shake their heads in disbelief as one plunger after another splashed into the frigid Mississippi River!
The Grumpy Plunge is a fund-raiser to benefit Great River Homes, Inc. and the Rotary Club of Wabasha. This is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support the local causes and programs these two non-profit organizations provide in the Wabasha community. Since the Grumpy Plunge is part of the “Grumpy Old Men” festival, you can make a weekend of it and enjoy all the festival has to offer!
If you choose not to make the bone-chilling splash, you can show your support by making a pledge to a braver soul. The plunge will be held at Slippery’s Bar and Grill on Saturday, February 23, 2013. There will be prizes, contests, and of course, bragging rights for plungers.
Lone plungers or “Teams with Themes” are encouraged to register today! Registration materials are available online at www.greatriverhomes.org, www.wabashamn.org, the Great River Homes, Inc. facebook page, or at the Wabasha-Kellogg Chamber/CVB. It’s an event hardy Minnesotan’s won’t want to miss. Brrrrr… we’ll see you there!
