The Heart of the Hamptons held its 15th annual Polar Bear Plunge on December 8 at Cooper’s Beach in Southampton. Many participants plunged into the freezing water to raise money for several charities. Since the first Polar Bear Plunge in 2004, Heart of the Hamptons and its participants have raised over $780,000, and that is not including this year. The participants, some of which charged the waves in costume, leaped in the water after they raised at least $25 each. Despite the cold, everyone was all smiles. . . even if their teeth were chattering.
