With temperatures hovering around freezing and chunks of ice floating in the bay, over a dozen people plunged into the water at Founders Landing in Southold Saturday morning to raise money for Maureen’s Haven.

The annual event helps the Riverhead-based homeless outreach program, and is supported by businesses and individuals from across Long Island. Southold area first responders were stationed in the water to help out anyone in trouble, but none of the plungers suffered any ill effects from the icy waters.
