Super Plunge XV

The 15th Annual Super “Plunge” Sunday is scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, 2019 at 1:00 PM.  Participants are invited to brave the icy, cold Atlantic Ocean, and will have plenty of time to be home for the big game.

Super Plunge XV, a fundraiser organized by St. Francis Community Center and the Swim Teams of Southern Regional High School, will take place at the 48th Street Beach in the Brant Beach section of Long Beach Township.  The “Plunge” has become a popular community favorite during the winter doldrums on Long Beach Island.   

Pre-registration is required.  Registration will take place at the Community Center on Saturday, February 2 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, and on Sunday, February 3 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.  Registration forms can be picked-up in advance at the front desk of the Community Center, or printed from our website, and mailed to St. Francis Community Center, Attn: Super Plunge XV, 4700 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach Township, NJ  08008-3926.  The fee is $30 per person on or before January 27 and $35 if registering after January 27.  The student registration fee is only $15 on or before January 27 and $20 after January 27...  Participants are encouraged to seek sponsor donations in addition to their registration fee. The Sponsor forms can also be found on-line.  The proceeds from this event benefit St. Francis Community Center and Southern Regional High School Swim Teams.

All registered participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt.  T-shirts will also be available to spectators for purchase after 12:00 PM on “Plunge” Day. Wristbands will be issued to all participants and must be worn at time of the plunge. Plungers should bring with them their courage, bathing suit, towels, blankets and whatever else is needed to warm-up after the ocean dip.  Costumes of all kinds are also encouraged.  

There will be post-plunge festivities back at the Community Center immediately following the plunge.  Hot chocolate, coffee, tea and goodies will be served to help warm-up everyone, and prizes will be awarded:  youngest plunger, oldest plunge, best costume, most funds raised overall and more!

The drawing for the $5,000 Travel Voucher Raffle will take place shortly after the awards ceremony. The winner will receive a $5,000 Travel Voucher from Home Town Travel located 128 Bartlett Avenue, Bartlett Commons, Rt. 9 South, West Creek NJ.  Only 1,000 tickets are sold and tickets are only $25.  The tickets are currently on sale at the Community Center and an online mail order form is available at: www.stfranciscenterlbi.org
