Polar Bear Plunge

mater dei news logo

It is hard to believe the 12th Annual Mater Dei Polar Bear Plunge is right around the corner. We are pleased to announce that our Mater Dei Family has come through again this year!!! We have over 100 plungers who will travel to Sea Isle City Saturday, February 15th, to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean to support our Tuition Assistance Program. We are extremely grateful to all these brave souls who are willing to take the Plunge with us!

We ask all Plungers to remember to get as many sponsors as possible to make the 2020 Plunge a huge success. Don't forget to ask your friends and relatives to sponsor you! This year we are asking for a minimum of five sponsors per plunger. Please use the provided "Sponsor Sheet" to record any donations. Checks can be made out to "Mater Dei Catholic School," with a note in the memo line saying: "2020 Polar Bear Plunge," as well as the last name of the family being sponsored. Donations can also be made on the Mater Dei website: https://www.materdeicatholic.com/giving (Please select the drop-down menu to find the 2020 Tuition Assistance Fund). Please be sure that donors leave the sponsored family's last name in the comment section. This year, the plungers with the most sponsors will be crowned "King and Queen Plunger" at The Oar House Pub on the morning of the plunge!

We have received several donations from our families unable to join us for the plunge. We thank you for remembering this important cause. It is not too late to make a donation if you have not done so using one of the methods outlined above.

We are happy to report that we are going into Plunge Week with $14,260.00 from our generous benefactors and several MD families. Our goal is to raise $40,000.00 for the MD Tuition Assistance Program. Please help us reach our goal.

Thank you for your support!
