You decide

The 15th Annual Dipps for Toys will happen on Sunday, December 4th. If you aren’t familiar with this event, it is sponsored by Honest? John’s Shakedown Society with the money raised used to purchase toys for DPS students and deliver turkeys for the holidays. So a great cause and all you do is jump in the Detroit River in December.

I have been dared to do this.

I will do this if I can raise at least $100. Any donation is tax-deductible and I am sure one of the other authors here will document the dip as proof. And remember it is a good cause!

The party starts at noon at the bar. The DIPP is at 4pm on Belle Isle. Then back to the bar to party some more. Minimum donation is $10 to dipp or watch. Yes, I’ll count your $10 admission fee towards the $100.

Oh and any suggestion on what I should wear?

    This will be my third year. It is a great time for a great cause. Don’t be shy – demand the support from freinds, family, co-workers. Last year, I was able to get $1,000 raised and broke a few fingers in the process.

    When we delivered the gifts to the kids it was the proudest ‘Detroit’ moment I’ve had to date. Sure the water is cold, but knowing you make a difference will keep you warm until the next swim.
