Freezin’ for a Reason!

When: Take the plunge anytime between November 1 and November 30!

Where: Anywhere as long as it is outdoors!

Registration will take place completely online this year. Visit to sign up!

Why Virtual?

Due to the safety of our plungers, state and town restrictions on gatherings, and health concerns caused by COVID-19, we are unable to proceed with an in person event. Though we aren’t able to gather in person, the funds raised from this annual fundraiser are vital to our mission and enable Weezie Library for Children to continue offering free programs, materials and services all year long.

A virtual plunge allows you to participate how, when and where you want! Don’t have access to open water? Plunge from your backyard! Fundraise from your couch! Busy cooking Thanksgiving morning, take the plunge ahead of time! We are so thankful for your support and are excited to see the creativity and fun that a plunge allows for!

All proceeds benefit the Nantucket Atheneum Weezie Library for Children, the island’s public library, which relies on the support of donors for 75% of their operating budget. Funds raised from the Cold Turkey Plunge make it possible to host over 500 free programs and services for Weezie patrons each year.
