LeFarm, The Whelk, and Kawa Ni Staff to Strip Down and Take TI Polar Plunge

16 Dec

TI Polar Bear Plunge Westport

Have you ever been warm and cozy in your house, but knew that you’d have to go outside for a few seconds and would need to enter a cold car? Yeah, we’ve all been through that and we’ve all procrastinated, and we’ve all shivered and cursed at winter like a dirty pirate. But, honestly, this is nothing compared to what Chef Bill Taibe and his staff from The Whelk, LeFarm, and Kawa Ni will be doing on New Year’s Day

Chef Bill Taibe of The Whelk and LeFarm in Westport at the Greenwich Wine & Food FestivalYup, instead of putting on more layers, they’ll be stripping off layers to take the 8th Annual TI Polar Bears Plunge right at Compo Beach in Westport. This year the staff at three of Westport’s best restaurants and everybody else taking the dive will be raising money for The Child Guidance Center of Mid-Fairfield County. They are an organization whose mission is to, “[H]elp children with mental and behavioral health needs achieve emotional stability, academic success, and happy and productive lives.”

If you’d like to come down and witness/take part in this awesome spectacle, here’s the schedule:

10:30 – Gather at Compo Beach in the Pavilion

10:45 – Opening Ceremony

11:00 – Polar Plunge!

11:30 – Brunch at O’Neill’s Pub & Restaurant in South Norwalk

If you can’t make the Polar Bears Plunge, you can donate to The Whelk’s page by going here. In addition, Chef Taibe is giving a portion of profits from all three restaurants on New Year’s Eve to the charity, so eat up!
