Make-A-Wish  / Donations

Paulie would be thrilled. He did not get his wish to boogie board in Puerto Rico, but in our first year of swimming in his memory we raised $7,000. That donation to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Metro New York  made it possible for one child to live their dream!

The Long Beach Polar Bear Club has become enormously popular and successful in a very short time. In subsequent years we raised and donated:

Every cent we collect in memory of Paulie and P.J. goes directly to the Make a Wish Foundation. We are all volunteers inspired by a common goal: to share laughs and shivers with a loving community, and in the process help make a child’s dream come true.

There are, of course, alternatives to an icy dip to support Make-A-Wish.
