Inaugural Polar Bear Plunge to benefit those in need
The inaugural Polar Bear Plunge is gaining traction and excitement as the day of the event draws near. dotsure.co.za (a product of Oakhurst Insurance) is proud to announce their partners for the event. Our proud partners are NSRI, Eden911, Rotary Club of George, Algoa FM and the Mayoral Warm Hearts Winter Campaign. These partnerships promise to bring great synergy at the event by means of providing safety, bringing the community together as well as world-class entertainment.
“At dotsure.co.za we really care about our local community. We are proud to be associated with like-minded businesses and individuals to join our cause. It is our aim to deeply immerse ourselves in the community and reach out to those in need. Bring your blanket donation and join the fun – it is all for a very worthy cause.” – David Roache, dotsure.co.za.
It was a natural progression for dotsure.co.za to partner with the Mayoral Warm Hearts Winter Campaign, initiated by the Executive Mayor, Charles Standers, who encourages businesses to partner with the George Municipality in aiding those less fortunate during the cold winter season in George. “As Executive Mayor I am excited for us to partner with dotsure.co.za in the collection of blankets at their inaugural Polar Bear Plunge” said Mr. Standers.
The dotsure.co.za Polar Bear Plunge is the first official event of its kind in the Eden District. The event is envisaged to inspire the community to show solidarity with those going to bed cold every night. One blanket donation will make a world of difference to someone in need.
Not only do we care about those in need, but also those who will brave the icy waters for this worthy cause. Warming refreshments will be served on the day by the Rotary Club of George. “Rotary Club is delighted to be part of this exciting inaugural event. This is a much needed blanket drive for our community. Great idea dotsure.co.za, you will be freezin’ them and Rotary will be happy to be defrosting them.” - Donald Goldfain, Community Service Director, Rotary Club of George.
dotsure.co.za is challenging all community members to take the plunge! The plunge will take place on Saturday, 6 August 2016 at Victoria Bay and will start at 10:00. Don’t forget to bring a blanket in order to participate and to dress in orange to show your support.
