Looking for a cure for the New Years Day Hangover? Why not jump into an ice cold lake for charity??Then enjoy football, beer and music for the afternoon!! Sounds like a winner to me.

Anyone can come and you don't HAVE TO JUMP. You can be a spectator and still enjoy the event.


HERE'S WHERE YOU CAN HELP, if you are coming or not...
I'm JUMPING IN FOR CHARITY. I (as your feerless beer leader!) need to raise $100 from beer club Mem-BEERS, Breweries, Distributors, Bars & Restaurants. If you would like to support MY JUMP FOR CHARITY, please click the payment button for AMAZON PAYMENTS to pay $10.50 per donation. I need to collect 10 donations of $10.50 which will cover the Amazon fees. If you want to DONATE more, simply do it in multiples of $10.50. If we collect more than my $100 fee, I will then have the CBC assistants, Chad, Chris, Charles jump with me as the donations accumulate enough money to pay for the additional jumps. (They don't know this yet!)

Any Business that would like to step up and sponsor me and my beer club assistants, we will wear TSHIRTS with the sponsors logos (XXL Please!). How's that for a deal ($400 covers all 4 of us!)? There will be a few hundred people in attendance and television/newspaper coverage. The event is tax deductable through Hope at The Point Foundation.

Wear funny hats, costumes...anything (respectable!) goes. Beach music beach themed!

SPECTATORS: Are welcome! We are asking for a $20 donation to enjoy the days events, payable at the event. If you pay here, $10.50, it will go to MY PLUNGE DONATION, not toward your donation for music, beer, coffee. Bloody Mary's and other items will be available. The only thing you pay here is for MY (Darrin's) Plunge.

History of the Lake Norman Polar Bear Club


New Year?s Day, 2009 ? Five friends living in The Point decided to start the Lake Norman Polar Bear Club by jumping off the docks of The Point Lake and Golf Club into Freezing Cold Lake Norman.

After taking the plunge, the original five Polar Bear Club members agreed to donate $100 each to Hope at the Point Foundation.

One year later, the original five Polar Bear Club members partnered with Hope at the Point Foundation to expand the Club and raise more money for such a great cause.

We added the first New Year?s Eve Polar Bear Club Party at Shoals Saloon and Grille in Mooresville which was a huge success and a ton of fun!


The New Year?s Day Plunge was a HUGE success in 2010! We added more than 50 new Polar Bear Club members and a great crowd of spectators and raised over $7000 for Hope at the Point Foundation!

This year we are again expanding our expectations as we strive to make this the BIGGEST and BEST Polar Bear Event yet!

We will again host a New Year?s Eve Party at Shoals Saloon and Grille which promises to be THE NEW YEAR?S EVE PARTY anywhere around Lake Norman!!! The New Year?s Eve Party is $50 per person which gains you access to the New Year?s Eve Polar Bear Party, food, music, dancing and fun plus two drink coupons. There will be a cash bar available throughout the event. With great bands, dancing, cold spirits and fantastic food, this year?s New Year?s Eve Party can not be missed!

New Year?s Day, we will welcome Polar Bear Club members of all ages starting at 11AM to join us behind the Tavern which is in the Village at The Point Lake and Golf Club and faces the 18th fairway. Join us for music, food, coffee, hot chocolate, and spirits, all designed to keep you warm before and after the plunge. We will also have fun activities for the kids before the Plunge plus prizes for the most creative hat and outfit!

Following the plunge there will be an ?After Plunge New Year?s Day Party? at Shoals where there will be great food, football, and every Plunger will receive a free cocktail of choice!!!

New Year?s Eve Party at Shoals

With your donation you become an official 2011 Lake Norman Polar Bear Club Member and receive a t-shirt and access to all New Year?s Day Plunge fun!

We also encourage you to start a TEAM!!! There will be a special prize to the TEAM which raises the MOST money for charity!!! Each TEAM Member must meet the minimums above, but you can get friends, family and companies to sponsor your TEAM!!! Results of each TEAM will be announced live on New Year?s Day and posted on the website following the Plunge.

You MUST complete a registration/waiver form prior to the event. Forms will also be available at the event. Payment can be made online early using the PayPal buttons above or simply come to the New Year?s Eve Party at Shoals or the New Year?s Day Plunge. Checks, Cash and Credit Cards accepted.
