PEARL RIVER– O&R is contributing $500 to help support the 10th annual Penguin Plunge benefit fundraiser in Nyack this year for three local youngsters who have suffered from severe health problems. Those children will get help with their medical bills from money raised when hardy adults voluntarily take a winter dip into the frigid Hudson River in Nyack on March 5 at Memorial Park from noon to 2 p.m. (the actual plunge is at 1:30 p.m.)
Over the past nine years, The Penguin Plunge, Inc. has raised close to $300,000 for local families. Donations can be made to the Penguin Plunge, Inc., 150 Hoover St., Blauvelt, N.Y. 10913. The Penguin Plunge, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
