Manhasset, NY– Supervisor Jon Kaiman and the North Hempstead Town Board invite you to join us March 2 for the annual Polar Plunge at North Hempstead Beach Park.
“Besides being a great event to socialize with family, friends and neighbors and engage in friendly and fun rivalry, the Annual Polar Plunge gives everyone the opportunity to raise funds for a worthy cause,” Supervisor Jon Kaiman said. “I look forward to seeing you there.”
Kicking off with the 9:00 a.m. registration, the plunge takes place at noon.
The event, which benefits the Special Olympics Foundation, features entertainment from WBAB radio, a Nassau County Police Department display, free snacks and hot beverages, and children’s activities including professional face painting.
