Plunge! Aquatic Centre, the ultimate, all ages, four-season water playground in The Village at Blue, will host its first ever charity event Sunday, May 4, 2008 benefiting Beaver Valley Outreach (BVO).

The day’s festivities will run from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm at a cost of $2 per person, which includes full admission to the 10,000 square-foot Plunge!, with access to indoor/outdoor pools, hot tubs, water slides and child-friendly play areas.  For each $2 collected, one dollar will be donated to Beaver Valley Outreach.

“Plunge! is very appreciative of the local support we’ve received over the last two years. We are excited to be able to give back to the community by way of Beaver Valley Outreach, an organization vital to the success of the Blue Mountain community,” says Kathy Boose, Recreation Manager at Plunge!

BVO has been a staple of the Blue Mountain community for over 25 years, assisting locals of all ages with recreational funding, quality children’s programming, emergency needs, a food bank, as well as grocery delivery and transportation for seniors. The organization is known for their Christmas hampers, healthy food boxes and Treasure Shop, providing affordable gently used clothing and house wares.

“We at Beaver Valley Outreach are thrilled to be partnering with Plunge! at Blue Mountain on an event that will bring together and benefit our community,” says Carolyn Letourneau, Executive Director. “Community events are behind BVO’s success and have allowed us to assist the Blue Mountain community for more than 25 years!”

With hourly draws, guests can enter to win a host of giveaways including a stay at The Westin Trillium House, five sessions of private swimming lessons at Plunge!, two rounds of golf at Monterra, a $50 Intrawest gift certificate and a $100 gift certificate to the 40 plus shops and restaurants in The Village. The resort’s fun-loving mascot – Blue – will also be on hand to meet and greet visitors.

Beaver Valley Outreach Charity Event at Plunge! will showcase Blue Mountain’s summer activities, as well as the resort’s golf season passes and summer camp programs.
