Kicking Off the Cupid Splash at Harpoon Brewery!

Yes, it's Cupid Splash time once again! And what better way to gather all of our cupids and kick off the excitement than a party at Harpoon Brewery?

Last Wednesday, February 1st, Save the Harbor / Save the Bay and our beach captains, community partners, local elected officials, and many past and future cupids gathered together to have a Harpoon beer and hear about our exciting plans for the Splash this year.

For those of you who couldn't join us, The Cupid Splash is Save the Harbor / Save the Bay's annual pledge and plunge fundraiser on 8 of our region's public beaches from Nahant to Nantasket. Similar to other polar plunges, we'll be jumping in to freezing Boston Harbor waters to raise money for a great cause-- but in our case, our great cause is the very beaches on which we splash! The funds we raise go towards free events and activities on our beaches in the Spring, Summer, and Fall-- for everyone in the Greater Boston region to enjoy.

Want to be a part of the fun? Of course you do.

To register to take the plunge and learn more about our plans this year, visit The site has several great tools to help you meet your personal fundraising goal, including fundraising tips and your own link to send around to your family and friends to start fundraising. Best of all, you'll be getting some free swag, bragging rights after jumping into such cold water, and several chances to win free round-trip JetBlue Airways tickets!
Once you’re signed up, start to send around your personal link to begin fundraising and recruit a few friends to register. If we each bring a friend or two, we’ll introduce twice as many people to how great our beaches are all year round. And, what’s more, we’ll reach our fundraising goal of $30,000 while we do it! I know so many of us love our beaches, so I know we’re all up to the challenge.
Thank you to our friends at Harpoon Brewery for hosting us on Wednesday, and to each of you for your dedication to your beaches. Together, I know we'll make the 2nd Annual Cupid Splash an even bigger success than last year!
See you on the beach!
