Steamboat Briefs for March 22


The fifth annual Penguin Plunge is seeking plungers and sponsors for the March 29 fundraiser sponsored by the Healthcare Foundation for the Yampa Valley. The cold-water plunge will raise funds to purchase a high-tech monitor for the benefit of patients in Yampa Valley Medical Center's emergency department and intensive care unit.

Penguins are asked to raise a minimum of $100 and may either form a team or be assigned to an existing team. Business sponsors are welcome.

All donations to the non-profit, non-tax-supported Yampa Valley Medical Center and its foundation are tax-deductible. For a Penguin Plunge information packet, contact the foundation at 871-0700 or e-mail
