    Great Neck resident Erin Lipinsky recently hosted his annual car wash and raised $600 to benefit Special Olympics New York. This event kicked off his efforts to raise money for the 2023 “Freezin’ for a Reason” Polar Plunge, which will take place Feb. 4 at North Hempstead Beach Park in Port Washington.

    Last year, Erin raised $23,290 breaking his own fundraising record, and making him the top individual fundraiser of the event. Erin has been a longtime member of the Great Neck Spirits Basketball Team for Special Olympics.

    Join Erin as he makes his 9th plunge, and others who support Special Olympics New York every year, by raising funds from family and friends, and then splashing into winter waters. The Polar Plunge® supports year-round sports training and competition and health and inclusion programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities in your Special Olympics NY community. This year, make sure you’re freezin’ for a reason!

    Support Erin by making a donation or taking the plunge yourself. For more information please visit:
