Heritage Harbor Penguin Plunge Raises Record Amount for Make-A-Wish Illinois

Posted by wlpo on January 30, 2016

More than 250 people took the plunge into the Heritage Harbor Marina earlier this month, raising a record breaking amount of money.

Earlier this week, Heritage Harbor Penguin Plunge presented the total amount the event brought in to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The event raised $101,500 for the charity. That includes $23,000 in contributions brought in by just one team, the Streator Peters.

Make-A-Wish Illinois helped grant the “wishes” of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Since 1985, the chapter has been able to grant more than 13,000 wishes.
