On January 1st, 2013 WARM will be holding their 7th Annual Penguin Plunge. The challenges Sandy has presented in holding this event have finally been overcome so please join us at the beach to support the WARM Center and the Westerly community.
Penguins will be Plunging at the beach in Watch Hill at 12 noon sharp. Participants will have access to the beach right next to the carousel in Watch Hill. This is a short walk right on to a newly cleaned beach.
Registration will begin at 10:30 am at St. Clare's Church, 62 Crandall Avenue, Westerly at Misquamicut Beach. A police escort will lead the Penguin Caravan the 2.8 miles to the beach in Watch Hill. Please be sure to check in at St. Clare’s first! Registration will be closing at 11:30. Costumes welcomed, water shoes recommended!!
This fun event supports a very serious cause; it helps WARM provide programs and services to people experiencing hunger and the homelessness in the greater Westerly community.
How to register: Registration is up and ready on the Firstgiving site www.firstgiving.com/warmshelter/7thpenguinplunge. Remember the more people you get to sponsor your plunge into the chilly waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the more WARM is able to provide direct services to the hungry and homeless individuals and families in the greater Westerly area. For more information contact the WARM Center at 596-1173.
Too scared to plunge? Join us in the Chicken Coop to cheer on the Best Plunger’s in RI! After the Plunge we will be serving hot soup, hot coffee, and sweet treats, as well as presenting top fund raising awards. Please plan on coming back to join the celebration! St. Clare's has a very large hall that can accommodate all Penguins and Chicken Coop Spectators. All proceeds benefit people experiencing hunger and homelessness in the Westerly area.
