Join us to ring in the New Year at the sixteenth annual Polar Bear Plunge sponsored by The Seafood Shop, benefiting Phoenix House Academy on Long Island. Brave “Polar Bears” will gather at Beach Lane Beach in Wainscott at 2:30 PM on January 1, 2015 to dive into the chilly ocean for a worthy cause. Since 1999, hundreds of participants have gathered for this East End tradition, organized by Seafood Shop owner Colin Mather. Phoenix House is truly grateful to participate in this community event with our neighbors.
“Polar Bears” and spectators can sign up for the event and make donations either in advance at The Seafood Shop or on the beach that day. For more information, please call The Seafood Shop at 631 537 0633; donations (checks/money orders made out to Phoenix House) can also be mailed to: The Seafood Shop, P.O. Box 246, Wainscott, NY 11975.
Following the fun on the beach and surf, staff and students of Phoenix House Academy on Long Island will be answering questions about the Academy’s mission at The Seafood Shop, located at 356 Montauk Highway, in Wainscott. Hot chocolate, chowder, and other warm refreshments will be served.
