Jimmy Parrot’s Plungers Plunge for Special Olympics Kentucky [Video]

Jaclyn complains, moans and groans.  Dave Spencer whimpers like a 7-week-old puppy.  And I scream, "This is gonna suck!"  That's typically how the Polar Bear Plunge goes each year when we jump into The Hines Center lake to help raise money for Special Olympics Kentucky.  And, this past weekend, we suited up again and prepared ourselves for a plunge into 22-degree water.  Standing with us was our team captain Jimmy Parrot and our friend Jeff Jackson, who we basically forced into plunging.  Here's how it played out . . .

Kizzy Takes the Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics [Video]

This is HILARIOUS!!  Saturday marked the 2013 Polar Bear Plunge at The Hines Center in Philpot and 200 plungers showed up to jump in the chilly, 22 degree waters of the Hines Center lake.  Among them was Kizzy, who joined WBKR's team, Jimmy Parrot's Plungers.  The cameras were rolling as Kizzy, decked out in a scuba suit, arm puffers and Korger bags, walked out onto the dock to prepare for her plunge.  WATCH!

Local Artist Aaron Kizer Explains Meaning Behind “The Black Print” Project [Video]

Here at WBKR, we are huge fans of local artist Aaron Kizer.  Personally speaking, I think Aaron is just amazing.  His talent is undeniable and people around the world have taken notice.  But, those of us who know him personally know that Aaron is much more than a guy with a paint brush.  He is an artist with a heart as pure and as beautiful as the creations he paints on canvas.  Because of this and his charitable commitments and offerings around the community, I just had a hunch I should jump on board his Black Print project.  Sure, it sounded a little ridiculous to spend $30 on a sheet of paper that was simply painted black.  But, I think everyone who bought a print knew that there was going to be something very impactful in doing so.  Turns out, there was!

The 2013 Polar Bear Plunge is Coming! [Video]

I have said it multiple times before . . . jumping into a freezing-cold lake is the single WORST idea in history and the single-worst way to raise money for a charity.  LOL!  But, you know what!  We're doing it anyway and we are going to have a blast.  :)
