Are you Cool Enough to Take the Plunge?

November 25, 2014

Grab your bathing suit or costume and dive into the icy waters of Corcoran Pond on Saturday, Nov. 29, at 1 p.m.  The chilly dip is for a great cause – the 2nd annual Cold Turkey Plunge that benefits the Waterville Valley Adaptive Snow Sports Program (WVAS).

The non-profit WVAS provides athletic opportunities for persons with cognitive and physical disabilities.  Last year’s inaugural plunge raised $12,000 for WVAS.  This year organizers are hoping to raise $20,000!

If you’d like to take the plunge, all you need to do is raise a minimum of $50 in donations.  You’ll be thanked with a Waterville Valley Adaptive Sports “empowered bracelet,” an official Cold Turkey Plunge long sleeve t-shirt and a tasty cold turkey sandwich made by Chef Sean Stout of the Wild Coyote Grill.

Join the Grand Gobbler’s Club and you’ll be rewarded with even more thank you prizes!

  • Raise $150 and earn a $25 Waterville Valley Gift Card
  • Raise $500 and earn a $25 Waterville Valley Gift Card + one anytime Waterville Valley Lift Ticket
  • Raise $1,000 and earn the above + an additional Waterville Valley Lift Ticket
  • Raise $1,500 and earn the above + a third Waterville Valley Lift Ticket AND a $25 Coyote Grille Gift Card

Other Grand Gobbler prizes will be awarded for various categories, including the individual with the most donations, team with the most donations and best costume (costumes are optional).
