11th Annual Penguin Plunge At Atlantic Beach

Hundreds braved the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean to take a dip in the waters at Atlantic Beach Wednesday to start 2014.

The Penguin Plunge is a charitable event that raises funds for local charities.

The recipient this year was Hope For The Warriors.

The event raised $7,500.

More than 1,500 spectators cheered for 570 "penguins" as they jumped in the water that was 54 degrees.
