Special Olympics Nevada (SONV) will host the 2019 Las Vegas Polar Plunge fundraiser beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 16, at Palms Place Hotel and Spa.
The Polar Plunge invites brave residents to take a chilly winter dive into the Palms Place pool to raise money and awareness for SONV. The family-friendly event will include food and drinks, festivities, raffles, awards, games and meet-and-greets with members of local law enforcement – departments that have chosen Special Olympics as their charity of choice.
Participants must raise a minimum of $125 to take the Plunge and enjoy the full festivities, which include an official Polar Plunge long-sleeve T-shirt. Additional fundraising incentives are available at different monetary levels. Guests are invited to watch their friends or family take the Plunge and may enjoy the post-Plunge festivities for an additional cost. Costumes are encouraged and this year’s event features a luau theme.
Plunge with a Purpose focuses on SONV’s mission of promoting inclusion, empowering people with disabilities and helping to put an end to bullying. Proceeds from the Las Vegas Polar Plunge benefit SONV to offer year-round training and competitions in 10 different sports, schools programs and health resources all completely free of charge to more than 3,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the state.
