Plunge raises $10k for Medical Center – Spring Plung success!

Our 2nd Annual Spring Plunge and Cannonball Competition For Kids was a huge success. The event brought in more than $10,000 for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to all of you who participated and generously donated.

The day’s activities began at 11 a.m. and included a silent auction item, the Beach Plunge and a Pee Wee Plunge and Cannonball Challenge. The entire fundraiser brought 123 participants through the gates. Sixty people took part in the plunge, and 45 in the Cannonball Challenge.

“We are so grateful to all those who participated in the Brownstone Exploration Plunge to raise funds for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Their generosity ensures that the patients and families of our region receive the very best in pediatric health services,” said Martha Schall, president of the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Foundation. “Our ability to pursue promising scientific discoveries, upgrade vital state-of-the-art resources and recruit and retain skilled faculty that are dedicated to caring for children, is only possible with philanthropic support. We are so fortunate to have the support of those associated with the Plunge and greatly appreciate that they have chosen to make the health of children a priority in their charitable giving.”

Many people contributed to the events success. The Portland Fire Department EMTs and Portland Fire Department Dive Team were on hand to help out in case of emergency and Brownstone employees volunteered their time to ensure the event ran smoothly. A generous group of 2011 sponsors included WCCC Radio Station, PrimeSource Distributors, Fiduciary Investment Advisors, Scuba Shack, V.I.P., Sneaky Bear Productions, Miss Southington – Morgan Amarone and CT and Children’s Medical Center Ambassador – Claudia Steves.
