2019 Polar Bear Plunge

The Polar Bear Plunge is one of the most popular events of the Southampton holiday season. Hundreds of plungers jump into the chilly water of the Atlantic Ocean to support local people in need. On Saturday morning, in early December, hearty plungers gather at Cooper’s Beach in Southampton Village, many wearing festive costumes or joining teams to show their support.  The enthusiasm and excitement build as plungers await the boom of the canon signaling the start time. Then, in a wave of cheers from friends and family, they run for the water.  Members of the local fire, ambulance, and ocean water rescue departments and surfers are on hand to make sure all are safe.  Participants and fans enjoy hot drinks and food in the Cooper’s Beach Pavilion after the plunge. All plungers & participants get a special Polar Bear Plunge hat. 

Polar Bear Plunge History

Since the first Polar Bear Plunge in 2004, the event has raised more than $800,000 to support HOH and its programs to help the needy on eastern Long Island.  All you have to do to join the fun is sign up and collect pledges of support (donations) from your family and friends. Join us for an exhilarating leap into the holiday spirit. We guarantee it will warm your heart.  C’mon. We dare you! 

Where Do the Funds Go?

The money raised through the Polar Bear Plunge supports the Food Pantry, Clothing Room and Assistance programs operated by Heart of the Hamptons.  All the money (100%) goes to help people in need right here in our community. Your efforts help supply hot meals for the homebound, supplies/clothing for school children, warm coats, emergency fuel oil, medical transportation, food and much more.  It’s a fun way to get into the holiday spirit by doing something good for your community. You’ll have cold feet but a warm heart!
