The Broken Oar on the Fox River in Port Barrington will host its second annual Fox River Shiver Sunday, March 9, in which volunteers dress in costume and brave the icy waters of the Fox River for a good cause.

Participants are needed to form teams of four or more (or they may enter individually) and obtain pledges or donations from family, friends, or business associates to take "the plunge" to benefit Lurie Children's Hospital. Six lower river establishments have already committed to participate in the event.

Spectators are also asked to purchase souvenir pins for a $5 donation to attend the event.

Registered participants will receive free event T-shirts and the chance to win prizes for the individual and team that bring in most donations. Trophies will be awarded for the Best Costume, Best Team Concept, Most Money Raised by both a team and individually, and Best Lower River Business Team Trophy.

The day of the event includes a free VIP pre-party tent for registered participants starting at noon, the "Plunge" at 2 p.m. and a celebration and awards ceremony with live entertainment starting at 3 p.m.

Last year's event drew more than 75 participants and hundreds of spectators and raised more than $10,000 for the Lurie Children's Hospital. Broken Oar hopes to exceed that amount this year.

The Broken Oar is at 614 Rawson Bridge Road, Port Barrington. Call (847) 639-9468.
