OWENSBORO, Ky. (2/10/14) – It’s never too cold to raise money for a good cause, as a group of local citizens demonstrated this weekend when they took the dive, literally.

At the Hines Center in Philpot on Saturday, a number of people gathered to participate in the Polar Bear Plunge as part of an effort to raise money for the Special Olympics.

Several braved the teen-temperature cold in just bikinis and shorts.
