Help keep your favorite charity afloat
Dumping a bucket of ice water over your head isn’t the only way to support a good cause and beat these last days of summer heat.
Dunked is back for its fifth year on Friday, Sept. 12. Presented by the nonprofit Chattanooga Friends, the public is invited to watch as local, well-known Chattanoogans are voluntarily dunked in order to benefit Siskin Children’s Institute, Northside Neighborhood House, Children’s Advocacy Center of Hamilton County and the Chambliss Center for Children.
Starting at 11:30 a.m. at Miller Plaza, NewsChannel 9 anchors Beth Neuhoff and Greg Funderburg, Talk Radio 102.3 FM personality Brian Joyce, President of the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga Pete Cooper, President & CEO of Siskin Children’s Institute John Farrimond, and owner of 1885 Grill Chef Miguel Morales, among others, will take the plunge for the nonprofit of their choice.
Attendees may choose whom they wish to dunk and buy three throws for $5 or unlimited throws for $20.
Local food trucks and restaurants in Miller Plaza will also be open for lunch.
So wind up your pitcher’s arm, take your Friday lunch break out to Miller Plaza, and help make a splash for charity!
