OYSTER BAY — A cold, rainy day didn’t stop CSEA Long Island Region members from “freezin’ for a reason” at the Town of Oyster Bay Polar Plunge.

Region members raised more than $17,000 for Special Olympics New York athletes, making the CSEA Long Island Region the top fundraising team for the day.

The donations will put several athletes on the road to fulfilling their competitive goals.
