With a goal of raising $9,500 for the Special Olympics, the High School’s Varsity Club has raised to date more than $11,100 as part of the Town of Brookhaven’s annual Polar Plunge recently held at Cedar Beach in Mt. Sinai. The fundraising record goes hand in hand with the record number of 68 students who signed up to take part in the plunge, along with co-advisers Mr. Jesse Rosen and Mrs. Deirdre Filippi. The Varsity Club members annually engage in projects centered around athletics and work to help others while challenging themselves in the process. They also run school-organized events and activities that help to raise money for various service-minded organizations.
