11th Annual Winter Plunge 2015
Thank you for all for another successful Winter Plunge!
On Sunday, February 22nd, 2015 a group of 36 Plungers braved the snow banks and cold to run into the ice-filled waters of Boston Harbor to raise funds for the GLBTQ Domestic Violence Project and raise awareness of the reality of domestic violence in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities. This year the Winter Plunge raised over $17,000 to support GLBTQ-DVP’s work.
Continuing with tradition, most plungers dressed in fun costumes, ranging from drag queens to super heroes and a whole group of Boston Derby Dames. This year, we were serenaded by the exuberant Extraordinary Rendition HONK! band from Rhode Island, who performed on an iceberg at the edge of the Harbor.
According to Curt Rogers, GLBTQ DVP Executive Director, “We work with the very serious issue of domestic violence 365 days out of the year. When we raise funds, we like to have a little fun.”
