An event to help the Hope Rescues Animal Shelter to raise money for homeless pets is coming up tomorrow. The second annual Polar Plunge to be held in Alton will be held at the boat ramp beneath the Clark Bridge tomorrow at noon. Inspired by friends plunging into Lake Michigan for the same cause, Alton natives Alison Dreith and Molly Peipert have planned this event to raise awareness of their cause.

People who are not interested in jumping in are welcome to watch the plunge, donate money, and cheer on their friends. Dreith says there are several ways to get involved.

Dreith comments

Tomorrow's forecast is for temperatures slightly colder than today. Hope Rescues is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter based in Alton, that rescues pets from both abusive homes and shelters that would euthanize these pets if they are not adopted.
