Local News

Philipsburg, Pa- Saturday some brave souls took the plunge into the frigid waters of the Black Moshannon in Centre County…. all for a good cause.

The 16th annual polar bear plunge raised over $31,000 for the YMCA of Centre County.

More than 100 people took part, including WTAJ’s Evan Hinkley. Many different groups who participated had a different costume theme. Evan was there dressed up as Cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation and took the plunge with the State College Young Professionals who collectively raised over $2,000.

Evan said the best part of the plunge was running in front of the giant space heaters afterwords!
