RE:             2014 Polar Bear Plunge


Dear Member:


It’s that time again!  The Hudson County Bar Association Young Lawyer Division will coordinate a team of Plungers to represent our Association at the 2014 Polar Bear Seaside, NJ on February 22, 2014.  We need you to join our team. 


Our total donation to the Special Olympics has proven to be a great success in past years, and we are hopeful to surpass our grand total for the year 2014.  This can only be achieved with your participation.  I cannot envision a more worthy cause.


To register as part of the HCBA YLD Marauders team, go online to register at   Once you are on the homepage, simply go to the Register tab on the top left and select Seaside, you will be prompt to the register & Waiver screen. You must click on register and then read and click “I agree” before you can move to the next screen.  Once on the next screen, click on join a team.  This will take you to a listing of all teams.  Select HCBA YLD Marauders and continue to fill in your information.  Once you have registered online we ask that you please send the Hudson County Bar Association a copy of your registration form to keep in our Team Records. 


Please note, as a team member you are required to raise a total of $100.00 in donations.  Lastly, you are not obligated to actually go into the water as a team member.  You can simply fulfill your donation obligation and come down for a day of fun and cheer your fellow team members on as several members did last year!   


All Plungers who reach the $100 minimum donation before the deadline can receive all sorts of cool Plunge items such as a polar bear plunge sweat shirt.  Raise more than the minimum $100 and earn more great items such as embroidered plush bathrobes, travel bags and towels coolers and Plunge Jackets. All donations are tax deductible. For a paper receipt please, call Special Olympics New Jersey at (609) 896-8000.   


All proceeds collected by Plungers benefit Special Olympics athletes and help foster the Special Olympics New Jersey mission.  This fundraiser has rapidly grown to over 3,000 Plungers that participate in New Jersey who have helped make the Special Olympics the huge success it is today.  It supports more than 23,000 athletes with regard to training and allows each to compete, free-of-charge year-round in 22 Olympic-type sports. 


Please contact Lisa Burke immediately with your participation as we are held to a firm timeline for registration.                                                               

                                                                                 Very truly yours,


                                                                               Markis M. Abraham, Esq.

                                                                               2014 YLD President
