The 11 a.m. event will benefit all the previous years’ charity recipients in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the plunge, according to Tom Paterson, one of the co-founders.

“This group came together 10 years ago as a dare from a friend for me to jump in the Long Island Sound,” he said. “Today 10 years later we have raised over $800,000 for various charities.”

Patterson said there will be a coffee and a donut truck at the Plunge and afterward participants are invited to a brunch at O’Neill’s Pub & Restaurant in South Norwalk.
