15th Annual: LPBC Polar Plunge

Mark your calendars for January 30th, 2016 for the 15th annual LPBC Polar Plunge! The planning has begun and
we need
YOUR help. Each year the LPBC and friends jump in Lake Michigan in the dead of winter in support of
great local families who are struggling with personal crises (In addition to the fact that we have NO common
sense).  To make the 201
6 Plunge amazing, we need YOU to nominate a family that is currently struggling
financially - whether it is related to an illness, injury, loss of job or other major life event. Our hope is to help a
family that is directly connected to one of our donors, swimmers, sponsors or friends, but most importantly, we just
want to help a great family who truly needs our support.

Over the past 1
4 years, through thousands of generous donations, the LPBC has raised over $270,000 and ONE
HUNDRED PERCENT of every dollar donated has gone directly to the families supported by the LPBC.
YOU can
make a  difference and all it takes is a nominations email to the LPBC.

For examples of past families and more information, please visit our website at
and "Like Us" on Facebook.

We look forward to seeing you all at the beach next January, preferably in your speedo!
