Polar Bear Plunge 2013

The super plungers (plunging once an hour for 24 hours) made their 23rd hourly dip.  You need to raise $10,000 to be a super plunger.

Nothing like an “O” to let you know you are in the Baltimore area.

Go time!!!  We all made a way into the water for the ice cold plunge!!!!

At the time of this post the Roost had raised $785.  Check this page for more information or to make a donation:

Pay It Forward: Ravens Roost #4 Adopted 7 Families

This year the Ravens Roost adopted 7 families of three children each through the Salvation Army for our Pay It Forward effort.  Seven team captains volunteered to take on the responsibility of raising $100.00 for food gift cards and presents (clothes and toys) for the families.  The Roost also donated an additional $700.00 dollars for food for Thanksgiving for those same families.

In addition Ravens Roost #4 donated toys to the Families Who Have been Affected by Domestic Violence.  In that effort, Jack and Candace raffled off a Torrey Smith autographed jersey to buy clothes and toys.  Jack and Candace also held a toy drive during the Roost’s annual Christmas party and bowling event to raise money for Special Olympics.

Candace was happy to report that her SUV was loaded to the ceiling with all of the generous gifts.  Jack and Candace, as chair of this years effort, want to thank each of you for your kindness.  It means so much for these families.

The Roost #4 Road Crew was in action on Frederick Road in Oella on Saturday, August 18th, in support of our Adopt-a-Highway commitment.  It took 10 volunteers only 1 hour to clean our stretch of highway this time around.  Ten bags of trash were collected … and Denise found a dime!  A couple of pictures are attached.  Thanks again to our dedicated volunteers!
