WOW! What a way to start the NEW YEAR!
As we move into 2024, we’re excited to share the incredible success of the New Year’s Day Special Olympics Maine Lobster Dip in Old Orchard Beach. It is with heart full of warmth that we express our deepest appreciation to every single individual who contributed.
The event itself was nothing short of extraordinary, breaking records and setting new heights for the Lobster Dip tradition. More than 710 new and veteran dippers took the cold dip into the frigid Atlantic Ocean.
But what truly takes our breath away is the astounding amount of over $221,000 raised in total – a staggering record-breaking figure! This speaks volumes about the generosity of those who believe in the transformative power of sport for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Your contributions have become the building blocks of a brighter and more inclusive future.
The New Year’s Day Special Olympics Maine Lobster Dip has set the tone for a remarkable year ahead and has reinforced the notion that when a community comes together with purpose, incredible things happen.
