Penguins To Take a New Years Day Dip

The Penguin Post has learned that on Jan. 1, 2010 the beachfront of the Princess Royale Hotel on 91st Street in Ocean City, Maryland will be crowded with hundreds of Penguin Swim participants and spectators ready to cheer them on as they plunge into the icy Atlantic to raise money for the hospital. Event day registration starts at noon on Jan. 1, 2010 in the atrium at the Princess Royale, with the swim starting at 1 p.m. Advertisement Participants who raise $25 will have their choice of a penguin hat, coozie or stuffed animal. Those who raise $75 can choose between a long sleeve T-shirt or penguin boxer shorts. Those who raise $150 will receive a sweatshirt or penguin pajama pants, and those who raise $250 will receive a beach towel or beach lounger. Those raising $500 or more will receive one prize from each prize level. First, second and third place trophies will be awarded to individual penguins who raise the most money, as well as to teams of penguins who raise the most money. Special recognition will be given to the youngest and oldest penguins. To register, or for more information about the Penguin Swim, please call Amy Unger, Director of Development, at 410-641-9644 or email her at Registrants can register online and track their fundraising at
