Polar Plunge Weekend Downtown Brighton
The Polar Plunge takes place Saturday behind Brighton High School, but over 30 Brighton merchants have come together to extend the event throughout the weekend to try to raise additional funds. The festivities begin this Thursday with a Polar Bear Pub & Shop Crawl Downtown Brighton. Visit any participating store or restaurant to pick up a punch card and then receive punches for each purchase or donation made that night. After reaching five punches, drop off your card at Downtown Main Martini Bar & Grill to be entered into a drawing that will take place at 9 pm. Most of the participating stores and restaurants will feature their own small fundraiser as well.
The much anticipated Polar Plunge will take place on Saturday from 1pm-4pm at Leith Lake behind Brighton High School. And then the weekend will close with the 2nd Annual Polar Plunge Afterglow Fashion Show on Sunday at Downtown Main Martini Bar & Grill from 5pm-9pm. This year's show will include a DJ, silent auction, and will feature fashions from Ally's Boutique, Ally & Amy Accessories, Bink & Babs Boutique, The Brighton Tux Shop, Cooper & Binkley Jewelers, Elite Feet, Hush Intimate Apparel, Talula and The White Dress.
Last year, the week long fundraiser raised more than $9,000 for Special Olympics. This year, participating merchants aim to raise between $10,000 and $12,000 throughout the weekend. So come out to the Polar Plunge Weekend Downtown Brighton to help raise funds for Special Olympics, and have a good time doing it!
