Silver Lake Swimming Beach
Now in it’s 4th year, the Columbia Heights Fire and Ice Plunge will take place Saturday, January 27th, 2018 from 12 – 3pm at the Silver Lake Swimming Beach in Columbia Heights, adjacent to the southwest corner of Silverwood Park .
Help you community out by jumping in a nice “warm” lake. Each jump costs $40. With that $40, SACA can purchase 320 – 350 lbs of food. That’s enough to feed a family of 4 for a month! You can increase that amount by getting people to sponsor you. Or, you can help by sponsoring someone else. You can sign up to jump at the Fire and Ice Plunge itself, but if possible, we would prefer that you register in advance. It makes planning easier. Registration is online at www.fireandiceplunge.org. All of the money raised stays in our community.
There will be craft beer & cider from Sociable Cider Werks, 612 Brew, Castle Danger Brewery, Insight Brewing, Barley John’s Brew Pub and Third Street Brewhouse. Chili (with and without meat) will be available from the Brie Catering. The ingredients for the chili will be items that are typically found at SACA. The Chicks on Wheels food truck will have deserts plus coffee and hot chocolate. There will be a large heated tent to warm up in, fire pits, games, a selfie station, fire twirlers and heated changing tents for the Plungers. A DJ will be playing music throughout the Plunge.
For the 3rd year in a row, Northeast Bank is our premier sponsor. Sharp Creative is generously providing a $500 scholarship to the high school team (drama club, football team, robotics team, scouts, Key Club, Leos etc) with the most jumpers. In case of a tie, the scholarship will be split. We also have a $250 prize for both the best costume and best jump. If a team wins, they will spit the prize.
The Columbia Heights Fire Department will be in the water with you to make sure that you’re safe every step of the way. Make sure to thank them at the event.
