When Kent Bentjen approached the jump area, a safety diver walked into a tent and had icicles hanging from his dry suit.  This was no ordinary fundraiser.

The BMW product specialist joined a group of seven from Park Place Motor Cars for a February Polar Plunge that raised $2,202 for the Special Olympics of Minnesota.

“The water was freezing but the adrenaline kicked in after about a few seconds in the lake,” he said.

Bentjen thanked Dale Just for convincing the group to do it.  Overall, he said the effort had raised more than $1.5 million and over 12,000 people had participated.
