Chicago Polar Bear Club ( CPBC, formerly the Lakeview Polar Bear Club ) will hold its 17th Annual Polar Plunge on Saturday, Jan. 20, at noon at Oak Street Beach.
Each year, the Chicago Polar Bear Club raises funds from hundreds of plunge'rs and their family and friends to support local families challenged by difficult circumstances.
Since its first fundraising event in 2003, the CPBC has raised more than $300,000 over a decade of plunges, all of which goes directly to families in need. This year the non-profit CPBC aims to raise $35k from 700+ donors to support two Midwestern families.
