Weekend Recap

Polar Plunge     Hurricane Creek Estates was the sight for this year's "Freezin' for a Reason" fundraiser. The event, sponsored by the Benton Police Department, was known as the Polar Plunge. Participants obtained sponsors who would pay for entrants to enter the winter cold water of Lake Hurricane. The event was considered a big success as over $18,000 was raised this year. Proceeds from the event were to the benefit of Special Olympics.
