The 10th Annual Grumpy Plunge is scheduled for Saturday, February 24, 2018. Last year 56 fearless plungers raised over $13,000. Will this be the year you commit to jumping into the icy cold water of the Mississippi River to support a good cause?
The Grumpy Plunge fundraiser benefits 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 right here in our community. And since the Grumpy Plunge will be a part of the “25th Annual Grumpy Old Men Festival,” you can make a day of it and enjoy all the fun events the festival has to offer!
Even if you choose not to make the bone-chilling splash, you can always 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 24, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. There will be awards, great costumes, and of course, bragging rights for plungers.
Lone plungers or “Teams with Themes” are encouraged to participate! Begin collecting your pledges today and come to Slippery’s between 1:30 and 2:30 p.m. the day of the plunge to register. The minimum amount each plunger must bring to registration is $75. Pledge materials are available online at www.wabashamn.org, www.greatriverhomes.org, or you may pick up a pledge form at the Wabasha-Kellogg Chamber/CVB.
Sponsors for this year’s Grumpy Plunge include: AmericInn of Wabasha, Bakers Welding/Wabasha Rubbish Removal, Bank of Alma-Wabasha Branch, California Overland, First State Bank of Wabasha, HBC, Jerry Arens State Farm Insurance, Kwik Trip, Paul Busch Auto Center, Perry Dental, Riverboat Lanes, Rotary Club of Wabasha, Slippery’s Bar and Grill, Turning Waters Bed and Breakfast, Wabasha Dentistry, Wabasha-Kellogg Chamber/CVB, and the City of Wabasha.
