In its eighth year in Cape, the event saw 233 plungers take on the frozen lake this year, many of them having participated in years past.More than $47,000 has been raised so far with more donations coming in daily. Top individual contributor was Jon Atkinson with the Belly Whoppers and top contributing team was Baer & Edington. The team costume contest prizes went to The Kelso Krazies as the Polar Coaster (1st place), the Freezin' Five as Freezin' Heroes (2nd place) and Super Plunger as the Gnomes (3rd place).
