The 10th Annual Frunge

Cheers to 10 years!

Raising funds while having fun!

March 2,                          

Lola's Lakehouse                    Waconia, MN

                 Registration opens at 10am

It's a bone chilling AND heart-warming celebration on Saturday, March 2nd at the 10th annual Frunge benefitting Children's Grief Connection and Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp.  Join our brave fundraisers we call Frungers, as they jump into the frozen waters of Lake Waconia to support our cause.

We will be bringing back the popular Fuzzy Bear Frunge for our 12 and under crew that would like to fundraise, but not jump in the water.

We also have a new way to fundraise, our Friends of Frungers can raise money to NOT jump into the lake. If you aren't able to make it on Saturday, or your doctor won't let you Frunge, this is the option for you!

New this year: We are also excited to host as members of the USA Curling Association and Chaska Event Center demonstrate the exciting sport of Curling as well as several other outdoor games for families to enjoy. We are also honored to have the beautiful Snow Queen and Snow Princess from Perfectly Princess Entertainment greeting families and cheering our pint-sized fundraisers.

All ages are welcome to fundraise for the Frunge and participate at the Frunge event and here is how:

The Fuzzy Bear Frunge is a special event for the youngest supporters  ages 12 and under who are not ready to Frunge into Lake Waconia but still want to dive in to help raise HOPE!

These young Frungers will slip down an inflatable slide into a pool filled with fuzzy cuddly teddy bears.

Young Frungers will take home the fuzzy bear of their choice to remember how they helped provide hope & healing for grieving kids.

Don’t forget to make it extra fun & wear a costume!
