It’s Time To Take A “Frozen” Plunge

frozenGet ready to take a “Polar Plunge” to help children in need! Join Advocates for Children on Saturday, February 7, 2015, 10:00 am at Dellinger Park to brave the chilly waters for a worthy cause.

The Polar Plunge is a winter time fundraiser organized to benefit Advocates for Children. Those brave enough to endure the frigid waters are encouraged to come up with a creative costume, add some great theme music and take a plunge into the waters of Dellinger Park pool.

This year’s theme is “Frozen”, a very fitting title for the event and to go along with the extremely popular Disney movie, Frozen. Each jump will help raise money for children and families that need the services provided by Advocates for Children. Eight programs make up the Advocates name and all services are provided to 2600 children and families each year free of charge thanks to community support of fun events like the Polar Plunge.

Participants, supporters and sponsors make this event a success. For those who would like to support the event thru sponsorship, there are three different levels: Ella sponsorship $1,000, Anna sponsorship $500 and Olaf sponsorship $250.

Jumpers may pre-register by completing an application available online at or by coming to the Advocates administrative office, located at 49 Monroe Crossing, Cartesville, Georgia.

Day of registration will begin at 9:30 am along with Chick-fil-A breakfast and pictures with the popular “Olaf”. Jumps will begin at 10:00 am, each jump will be judged by a celebrity panel of judges. Prizes will be given for best jump, best costume and most money raised. Some of the prizes include $100.00 of frozen food from Publix of Cartersville, a Kindle fire HD7 and much, much more.
