WESTON, Conn. — Members of Weston High School's Circle of Friends club took the Penguin Plunge on Saturday to help raise money for the Connecticut Special Olympics.

Five students and a staff member jumped into the 38-degree waters of Long Island Sound off Westport's Compo Beach.

The club raised more than $1,000, and more than $90,000 total was collected at the plunge, club President Hank Weinstock said.

Weston's football coach, Joe Lato , donated jerseys to the club to wear into the water.

The Circle of Friends club is still accepting donations for the Special Olympics at Weston High School, 115 School Road, Weston, CT 06883 - Attention: Circle of Friends Club.
