Turkey Plunge 2019

This year the Nantucket Atheneum Cold Turkey Plunge turns 18!  This annual Atheneum fundraiser features hundreds of spectators and swimmers who brave the cold waters at Children’s Beach on Thanksgiving morning to benefit the Weezie Library for Children. Complimentary hot chocolate, coffee and pastries are generously provided by local businesses.

Individual Plungers and teams are encouraged to have their family, coworkers and friends sponsor their participation in the Turkey Plunge by donating to the event! All proceeds benefit the Nantucket Atheneum Weezie Library for Children, the island’s public library.

Business Sponsors

Corporate and business support is vital to the Nantucket Atheneum’s efforts as the island’s public library to provide a full range of information resources and services, cultural and educational programs, and expert staff assistance to adults, teens and children year round and free of charge. The Atheneum would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to our 2019 Business Sponsors.

I’ve worked as a volunteer for the library for 10 years. I have never found a more pleasant, dedicated and professional group of people. The Atheneum and its staff are a treasure for this town.
