Jump In the Lake Fundraiser



Community action has never been so much fun. Lakers are invited to take part in the first “Jump in the Lake!” event on Sunday, April 28 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Island Beach, Mountain Lakes.

The brisk event is a benefit to help preserve the quality of life in our community organized by the Citizens for Health, Safety & Welfare (formerly Don’t Rezone Waterview) in partnership with the New Jersey Highlands Coalition. Proceeds will go towards funding research and hiring professional experts to address the community’s concerns regarding the proposed development at Waterview.

Anyone age eight and above can take the plunge at 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. Before or after the splash, enjoy music, food, vendors and entertainment for the entire family. Prizes will be awarded to the craziest outfits; largest sports, business or neighborhood teams; and biggest fundraisers. The Grand Prize for the top fundraiser is a hot air balloon ride for two donated by A Beautiful Balloon.

HOW TO REGISTER:  Start your own fundraising page and raise pledges.  You need to raise a minimum of $30.00 to participate and get a Jump in the Lake!” T-shirt.  Your efforts will help spread awareness about the proposed redevelopment and raise the critical funding necessary to help preserve the quality of life in Mountain Lakes. Local businesses who are concerned about the development and want to show their support can become a sponsor or donate prizes. Sponsorships levels are $10,000, $5,000, $2,500, $1,000 and $500.
