Community Spotlight: Shamrock Shiver Thanks Participants for Another Successful Year

Published Saturday, January 11, 2014

BRADENTON BEACH -- While Clancy’s 6th Shamrock Shiver charity plunge ended days ago, we feel that the event is not over until proper gratitude is expressed.  If not for the generosity of our friends, families and local businesses, we would still just be some friendly beach-lovers keeping a New Year’s Day promise. 

 

Instead, we are a humble group of incidental fundraisers in awe of what can happen when hearts, minds and concern for children come together.

After 6 “Shivers” we have raised $120,000 for Caring For Children Charities, a local 501(c)3 organization serving Manatee and Sarasota Counties.  Besides having serious fun doing that, we should all take great pride in knowing 100% of our proceeds go directly to services for disadvantaged children and their families. 

 

How many larger organizations can claim that?  Thanks to all our supporters, we can.  Rest assured, recipients of your generosity will be having a happier New Year.
