2022 Polar Bear Splash - Long Beach, NY

Masha's Team

Why This Is Important To Us

For 12 years, YOU and Masha have raised close to $100,000 for Make A Wish through the Long Beach Polar Bear Splash, THE BEST MORNING OF THE YEAR!!! Each year she asks local merchants for donations to raffle off at a fundraiser at our home. In 2020, Masha literally wheeled herself out of the ICU at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) raced home after having an open lung biopsy the day before, just to get home in time for this party.  You didn't disappoint and that year raised almost $20,000!!!  

Soon after, Masha received the results of her lung biopsy....her condition is terminal without a lung transplant.  Luckily, she was immediately placed on a the lung transplant list with CHOP.  After several additional hospitalizations, Columbia Hospital also listed her.

While Masha is waiting for lungs, she is even more committed to raising money for wishes. Masha’s TEAM has vowed to continue the tradition and raise money. We ask you for your help.

Please join us at our fundraiser on February 6, 2022 at 9AM-NOON at BRIGHT EYE BEER CO on Park Ave in Long Beach.  If you have ever joined us you know that each year the party gets larger and larger but our house remains the same size.  After our last house party, Luke Heneghan, who has been brewing beer for our party for many years, offered to host the party his new space at Bright Eye Beer Co. This year we are very proud to partner with Luke, Molly, and Kiera at BRIGHT EYE BEER CO!!!  We will be advance selling admission and raffle tickets for all the fablous baskets you have come to expect.  Food will be included with admission and beer will be for purchase at the bar.

Make-A-Wish grants thousands of unique wishes each year. A lot, yes. But that’s only 50% of eligible kids. We are fundraising so more deserving kids and their families can know the happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring.

This only happens because of generous donations from family, friends and the community.

Please help us support this great cause by joining our team or making a donation to fundraising goal.  Thank you for your support!
