The Rotary Club of Penetanguishene is proud to announce that almost $6,000 was raised for our community during the 14th Annual Rotary Polar Plunge held on Saturday February 15th during Penetanguishene’s Winterama.  Nineteen plungers collected pledges on behalf of various non-profit organizations.  These pledges were then given to the Rotary Club of Penetanguishene which subsequently made a donation of 60% of the pledged money to the specified non-profit organization.  The other 40% will be used by the Rotary Club for its various projects within the community.  Over $100,000 has been raised by plungers over the past 14 years.  A list of all plungers and the amounts raised is provided below.

 In addition to the plungers and the community that supported them, the Rotary Club would like to recognize and thank the following:
