POINT PLEASANT BEACH — The New Jersey Elks announced their 16th annual John Sentner Memorial Plunge to be held on Feb. 11 at Martell’s Tiki Bar off the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk.
The charity polar plunge benefits the Elks’ Camp Moore for special needs children in honor of the late Elk and creator of the event, John Sentner. On Saturday morning, all participants will show up to brave the frigid Atlantic Ocean at noon in what the Elks refer to as “Freezin’ for a Reason.”
“We’ve held it every year to raise money. [Mr. Sentner] came up with the idea of jumping into the cold ocean to raise money for our special children and our state’s major project, Elks Camp Moore.”
The camp, which is located in the Ramapo Mountains of Haskell, is dedicated to providing a fun-filled getaway that is catered to special needs children, as a way to fulfill the Elks’ slogan, “Helping children with developmental disabilities to help themselves.”
