Upcoming Events

15th Annual B’ville Big Chill January 29, 2022
If you have not already done so, sign up to plunge at the 15th annual B’ville Big Chill! We have 22 plungers and seven teams so far – have you signed up?
Create a team and collect pledges – the TOP THREE fundraising teams will earn cash prize donations to the charity of their choice. To sign up to plunge, see the instructions below.
Even if you can’t plunge with us this year, come out to Mercer Park and enjoy the fun. In addition to the plunge, we have local restraint favorites competing in the Best in Bowl competition. For just $5 per person, you can enjoy dishes from all competitors.
The Poker Bear Express Pub Crawl will take place from 4 to 8 pm. You know how it works: purchase a ticket for $10, and walk to participating bars to try to make a winning poker hand. Best hand wins a cash prize and a gift card to each participating location.
Whether you plunge or not, we hope to see you at the 2022 B’ville Big Chill or Poker Bear Express!
To sign up for the plunge:
  • Go to and scroll down past the adorable logo to the grey JOIN THE CAMPAIGN button.
  • Click the button and the Account Creation page will load.
  • Enter your name, email address, email address confirmation and click CREATE MY ACCOUNT.
  • If you are using the same email address to register that you have used in previous years, click Log In below the CREATE MY ACCOUNT button.
  • Even if you don’t remember your password, click Forgot your password? and follow instructions to reset your password.
If you want to create a team, one person must first register as an individual. After completing the individual registration, you can click CREATE A TEAM or JOIN A TEAM on the My Dashboard page. Once the team is created, any individual that registers can join your team.
We ask that each plunger raise at least $100 per person for the “privilege” of jumping into the Seneca River.
