‘Jump’ nets shelter over $19,000

FREEZING FOR A VERY GOOD REASON — Some 73 “jumpers” braved the icy water at Highland Lake Beach in Bridgton at the 17th annual Freezing for a Reason benefit for Harvest Hills Animal Shelter. The “jump” was a major component of Bridgton’s Winter Carnival festivities. Shelter officials report that the jump raised over $19,000 in cash and product donations. Fryeburg Veterinary Hospital, which again featured a team of jumpers, was the top fundraiser.
