Ocean City Penguin Swimming

A freezing Dip For A Great Cause

The swimmers

Although it has come and went already there is always time for next year it happened January 1st. A very interesting and bizarre way to fundraise, it is something of a spectacle to see. Me personally I’ve never taking the plunge but this year coming I most certainly will :D. Please take a look at some of the photos it is so great that everyone comes together to help out in so many different ways. Never heard of it or maybe you would like to participate as well, here is some info on it to get you started. Always looking forward to an incredible New Year’s Day at the Princess Royale you will find it there at 91st Street in Ocean City, Maryland! In honor of our 20th Annual Swim, Frankie, the miniature trick pony, will be entertaining the masses, and ice sculptor Erik Cantine will create a throne of ice for photo ops. Sherman the Shorebird from the Salisbury, Maryland Stadium will also be flying around.

In response to popular demand, the team category has been divided; prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place for businesses’ teams as well as the top teams for community groups and organizations. Individual penguins who raise the most money will also be recognized, as well as the oldest and youngest penguins. Don’t forget to come dressed in costume to be eligible for some great prizes!

OUT OF TOWN FOR THE HOLIDAYS? Participate in the Virtual Swim! Register and fundraise as an individual penguin or as part of a team. Then jump into the water where you are, take a photo and share it with the Penguin Swim’s online community on Facebook and Twitter using #OCPenguinSwim. Get ready to dunk your penguin tail in the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean for a good cause!

Co-chairs Sal Fasano and Madalaine How are leading the event planning committee this year and the committee is already busy revving up efforts for a super fundraiser. There will be new incentive prizes for all swimmers and new winning team category those teams who raise the most money. The 2014 Penguin Swim promises to be filled with fun and excitement! Be a part of the frosty fun! Why not trying something new come check it out next year January 1st 2015. Below are some photos and contact information enjoy.

      Thank you I am glad you are enjoying my blog 🙂 . I did all the theme and look of the blog myself, I had several other ideas other than this one. The themes have changed three times but I am very happy with this one compared to the last theme I did. To save money I just did everything by myself. Again thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog. Feel free to come by everyday and check out the posts on my blog.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its field. Fantastic blog!

    Greetings! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!
