· Penguin Swim: The OC Ravens Roost #44 “Penguin Swim Team” is once again raising money for Atlantic General Hospital as part of their 27th Annual Penguin Swim which takes place at the Princess Royal Hotel on New Years Day. Last year we raised over $14,700 and the total raised by the Team in the past twelve years is $126,991. PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING THE TEAM !!!! You can register at "www.aghpenguinswim.org". Simply click on "join a team", then click on "Ravens Roost 44" and fill out the information. If you are a returning team member, be sure to click on "returning penguin" at the top of the page first. There is a $25 registration fee to join a team.
This is the Team's 13th year participating in the Swim and "getting wet for a good cause". We normally hold several fundraising events throughout the year in addition to personal donations collected from friends and neighbors. This year, due to the Covid-19 concerns and restrictions, we have been restricted to just doing a raffle and one fundraising event at The Shrimp Boat in West OC which took place on Fri. & Sat. 10/30-31. This has greatly restricted our fundraising efforts and made our personal requests for donations much more important.
If you are able, please make a donation to support the entire OC Ravens Roost 44 Team's effort to help this very worthy cause, our non-profit community hospital. Simply go to "www.aghpenguinswim.org", scroll down the left side of the page and click on "Search All Teams” Then click on “OC Ravens Roost 44”. Scroll down to “Team Members” and click on the name of the penguin you want to donate to, then fill out the requested info.
You can also support the Team by purchasing a raffle ticket (or 3) that could win you one of 3 great prizes; Five $100 gift cards ($500 value) to local restaurants; a catered in-home seafood dinner for 6 from the Shrimp Boat; a Basket of cheer. Tickets are $10/each or 3 for $25. See below for more info.
Remember, whether you live here or just visit the OC area, if you have a medical issue while here, you will probably wind up at Atlantic General Hospital. Help to make it the very best it can be.
See below for additional details.
