The plunge was originally organized in memory of Nancy Schonheinz, a victim of domestic violence. The event is now used to spread awareness about domestic violence.

Proceeds from donations and t-shirt sales will go towards college scholorships for two Fairhaven High School seniors entering fields related to domestic violence.
