Saturday, April 1st was the day people did something crazy for a great cause. Many took the polar plunge for Special Olympics! The Williston Police Department lead the charge with the fun community event at the Williston fairgrounds for a day of fun and fundraising. It was a perfect, sunny day.

Plungers raised a minimum of $100 for the opportunity to take the plunge. Some formed a team, and created a fun name. Some wore crazy costumes with family, friends, co-workers, or classmates. No matter what, all participants had fun at the Polar Plunge-which is what it's all about-fun!

Plungers competed for the following awards. This always makes the day just a bit better. The thoughts and creative ideas they come up with are something people talk about for most of the year!

Best Belly Flop: Everhett Ziebarth
Most Money Raised by an Individual: Rowan Horswill
Most Money Raised by Team: Williston Police Department

The day started at 11:00 am with the live auction. There were gift baskets, gift cards, a golf package, a tattoo session, diamond earrings, 2 cars donated by Williston Auto and Red Rock Ford and more.

The Williston Police Department would like to extend a tremendous thank you to the community for showing up and making this event such a huge success!
They are proud to announce that the 2023 Williston Polar Plunge raised $34,118.97 for our local Special Olympics Team.
The Williston Police Department thanks the businesses and individuals for their donations, sponsorships, services provided, and their participation in the Williston Polar Plunge Event. They look forward to next year's plunge!
