Sorry, Bowling for Education is Currently Sold Out!
The Rotary Club of Lake Arrowhead is hosting the ninth annual PolaRotary Bear Plunge at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa Beach at 10:00 AM on Sat. February 4, 2017.
Styled after fundraising “walk-a-thons”, volunteers dive into the freezing cold waters of Lake Arrowhead to raise money for the Lake Arrowhead Rotary Foundation AND their favorite charitable organization. Last year, over $27,000 was raised.
Those who jump can choose to split the money they collect between the Rotary Foundation and another charity of their choice.Benefactors of the “split” in past years include Soroptimist, Rim Education Foundation, Arrowhead Arts, Mt. Calvary Lutheran Pre-school, Mt. Sunrise Rotary Club, Wildhaven and the Mts. Community Hospital Foundation. The most successful fundraiser in 2015 was the Rim Education Foundation, led by Jo Bonita Rains, which raised $3200.
Over the past years, jumpers have included State Assemblymen, County Supervisors, Mountain Citizens Of The Year, the Mountains Community Hospital CEO, school board members, school teachers and principals, school board superintendent, Rotary presidents, Rotary district governors, Soroptimists, and
