A message from Michelle Donofrio

Dear Friends & Family,

It's that time of year again!

On Saturday, February 12, 2022, I alongside some of my closest friends will plunge yet again at Manasquan Beach for the 16th year in efforts to raise money to make the quality of life a little bit easier for those battling ALS.

This plunge has been quite the tradition in my life since 2008! Friends from Lafayette and Wall reunited each year (usually bunking at my parents house) for a freezing cold weekend that would supply us with enough laughs for a lifetime. I can't tell you how many stories start with "that one year at the plunge..."

Then came 2021 where my entire family plunged with me at Belmar Beach as Covid prevented the organized event from taking place. Ages 9 to 71 bravely took to freezing cold waters and raised an INCREDIBLE amount of money for the cause. We even had some wonderful spectators come and cheer us on. 

While as friends and family we come together each year to raise money to fight against the hardships of the ALS disease, we plunge specifically in memory Mr. O'Neill, the father of my remarkable friend (and favorite dancing partner) PattyO. Pat and his family have been incredible advocates in raising money and awareness around ALS since the beginning and we plunge each year for them! 

As always, jump in and feel the love!

With love and appreciation, 


- Team Tim
