Frostbite for Charity

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Coldwell Banker Sky Ridge Realty


No, we are not mad at you!

Go Jump in the Lake is the brain child of Dr. Pat Rains, president of the noontime Rotary Club, to help raise funds for those in need of help on the mountain. On February 14th at 10am, volunteers will take part in the first annual "PolaRotary Bear Jump" at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa Beach..


Currently, about 20 individuals, possibly suffering from frostbite of the brain,have volunteered (see list below) to "jump" into the frigid water of Lake Arrowhead for charity. All proceeds raised from this event will go to non-profits helping improve the lives of so many on this mountain. Each volunteer jumper must have sponsorships totaling $500, or more, from those who wish to see them freeze.

For just $5, $10, $20 or more, employees, friends, and relatives now have the perfect opportunity to go tell their favorite boss, friend, brother or sister, wife or husband to go "JUMP IN THE LAKE".

Everyone is welcome to come out and enjoy the fun. Hot cocoa and coffee will be available along with a good time for all who attend. But be sure to bring a nice warm coat!
