WESTPORT, Conn. – The Child Guidance Center of Mid-Fairfield County has been selected as this year’s beneficiary for the Westport Temple Israel Polar Plunge.

The TI Polar Bears will make their eighth annual plunge on Thursday, Jan. 1.
To date, the TI Polar Bears have raised nearly $600,000 for various organizations, including Autism Speaks, Make-A-Wish Foundation Connecticut and United Cerebral Palsy.
