Mater Dei Prep is an independent, faith-based college preparatory high school that fosters individuality and growth within an intimate and inclusive community. Our family is your family.
On Sunday, January 8, 2017, the Mater Dei Prep community will
once again take part in the Ancient Order of Hibernians’ Polar Plunge for
Catholic Education in Long Branch, NJ. During this annual event, thirty
Catholic schools take part plunging into the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean
to raise money for their schools. Our goal is to raise $25,000 during the
plunge. All money raised by Mater Dei Prep through this event will go directly toward
the renovation of our science labs in 2017.
There are two opportunities for
you to support this event: The first is to be plunger and collect pledges. The second is to be an Event Sponsor. If you own a
business (or know someone who does) or would like to make a family donation,
please consider sponsoring the event. The form explains the three levels of
sponsorship available: banner, t-shirt and scholarship.
Check-in is from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Rooney’s
Restaurant, with plungers in the water at 1:00 p.m. Since Jan. 8 happens to be
Elvis Presley’s birthday, all plungers are encouraged to dress like the King.
The goal is to set a record for the most Elvises plunging at one time.
