Penguin Plunge – Middletown


Every single Penguin Plunge I photograph, I am ALWAYS overwhelmed with people’s generosity!  These people are just crazy enough to jump in a frozen lake to raise money…wow!  248 people, to be exact…and the water temp was 36 degrees and they raised over $52,000!  (did I mention the water was 36 degrees?)

Maybe not such a good idea to add water to Cinderella, right?

I overheard an interview Miss Connecticut USA, Erin Brady did with the River 105.9 – it made me smile when she welcomed the photographers to take her photo to prove she’s “not just a beauty queen”!  Awesome!  So cool that she and Miss Teen Connecticut, Kendall Leary plunged!

IMG_9259-copy IMG_9620-copy IMG_9687-copy IMG_0002-copyThank you EVERYONE for showing up and taking the plunge!!  It always warms my heart and makes me smile to see the money raised for Special Olympics!  😀
