Annual “Freezin’ for a Reason

February 22 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Eastern Shore of Virginia Habitat for Humanity would like to invite you to participate in the Annual “Freezin’ for a Reason.” The dip in the bay will be held Saturday, February 22, 2020, at the Cape Charles Beach. We hope you will participate again this year. Join Celebrity Dipper, Todd Burbage, of Blue Water Development, in raising needed funds for Eastern Shore Habitat for Humanity. The proceeds are used to help provide vital housing for those in need on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. We are grateful that our fundraising efforts have allowed us to build two houses a year. Eastern Shore Habitat hosts three major fundraisers a year and this event is integral for us to continue building two houses a year.

There are several ways for you to be involved in the Annual “Freezin’ for a Reason.” First, you can participate as a team or as an individual in raising pledges to dip with fellow dippers. Alternatively, you can support our Celebrity Dipper if you choose not to brave the cold water but would like to contribute as a sponsor.

Prizes will be awarded to individuals (18 and younger) and teams that raise the most sponsorship dollars.

Individual Dipper Prizes

· First Place- Apple IPad

· Second Place- 40” smart TV

· Third Place- Beats Bluetooth Speaker

Team Prizes

· Overall Team raising the most sponsorship dollars- will be presented with a trophy.

· Youth Team raising most sponsorship dollars- will be presented with a pizza party and trophy.

· Both Teams will be listed on the Golden Hammer Award displayed at the Habitat Office

Teams and individuals can register at Trinity United Methodist Church Social Hall on Tazewell Avenue and Plum Street in Cape Charles at 11:00 AM. FORMS MUST BE FILLED OUT LEGIBLY AND COMPLETELY, AND SIGNED BY A PARENT IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OLD. Sponsor forms must be turned in the day of the Freeze, along with the money collected. Anyone who raises at least $35 will be entitled to a free lunch following the dip; if you raise $65 you will receive a free lunch, a February Freeze t-shirt and one free door prize ticket. Please note: only money actually turned in on the day of the Freeze can be counted for the prize awards. Anyone 18 years old and younger will be in the competition for the top three prizes for most sponsorship dollars raised.

Please invite friends and family to watch the dip. Participants will be led into the bay by our Celebrity Dippers at 12:00 PM. Lunch will be served following the dip at the Trinity United Methodist Church Social Hall on Tazewell Avenue and Plum Street. Cost of the lunch for non-dippers will be $5.
