This will be the 5th year in a row that adventurous people will take a cool dip in the Hudson to raise money to benefit local, ailing children. This year's event is set for March 4th from noon to 2PM at Nyack's Memorial Park.
The event will help support 2 families with their expenses, as they concentrate their efforts on their brave and amazing children's health.
Alex Fernandez is an outgoing 4th grader at Valley Cottage Elementary School. His sharp headaches were determined to be the result of an extremely rare type of mixed-cell brain tumor. He needs specialized radiation treatment and the funds raised by the Plunge will help.
Francesco Galvano, a 7th grader from Pearl River was diagnosed last summer with leukemia. He began aggressive treatment, which continues.
So, come out on March 4th, take the plunge, or just have fun watching those that do! There will be food, music, and entertainment for the entire family.
There is also a Penguin Plunge pasta night scheduled Friday, March 2nd from 6PM to 9PM at the Blauvelt Fire Department (548 Western Highway, Blauvelt.) Donations are $10/adult, $8 for Seniors, and $5 for children. There will be a raffle during the evening.

"It is my pleasure to talk about the home buying experience I had with Mary Lovera as my real estate broker. I purchased my townhouse at Village Gate in February 2014 and closed in April 2014.
My experience with Mary was professional, smooth, and reliable. She listened to what my needs were and was able to identify appropriate listings for me to view. After seeing several listings she got a clear sense of what I wanted. When the townhouse which I ended up purchasing became available she immediately set up a showing with knowledge that there were other interested parties. She advised me responsibly during the bidding process, with the awareness about my clarity that the home met my needs, and my offer was accepted with no difficulties. She provided information when I asked, and given her knowledge of the area she could advise me regarding services in the community that would assist my homeowner experience, including a real estate attorney who was very easy to work with.
I have no reservations in highly recommending Mary. She is a terrific real estate broker who will work hard with you to find or sell your home, as any broker would, but her strengths are that she is a smart, professional, and pleasant partner in the process."
