Winter Plunge 2015“Gettin’ Cold for a Cause”

“Winter Plunge – Gettin’ Cold for a Cause” is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Forest Lake to help organizations raise money for their cause. This year The Frassati Freezing Falcons will be plunging into the frigid waters of Forest Lake on February 21, 2015 to raise money for our school. The school will receive 70% of the total amount of pledges collected for our team. (The other 30% goes to the Rotary Club.) We are hoping to raise at least $7,000  through this event which means the school would receive $4,900! As of today, we have 44 plungers on our team and they have already raised over $2,000.  If you are interested in participating as a plunger, please visit the Winter Plunge website at www.winterplunge.kintera.org for information on how to register. If you would like to make a donation you do that online at the previously mentioned website or you can send your donation to the school office. Please make checks payable to The Rotary Club of Forest Lake.  If you have questions, feel free to contact Coralie Kroll at ckroll@frassatiwbl.org or 651-429-7771.

Join the team by February 7 and get this Fabulous Freezing Falcons T-shirt!
