Photos: Peconic Plunge fundraiser for Maureen’s Haven

As temperatures hovered near 20 degrees, dozens of brave souls dunked themselves into Peconic Bay in Mattituck Sunday morning to raise money for Maureen’s Haven Homeless Outreach. The organization is a branch of the Peconic Community Council and provides temporary housing, hot meals and personal items to people in need on the East End.

Maureen’s Haven chairman Dwayne Wagner said he appreciated all of the support and predicted that this year’s plunge raised considerably more money than previous fundraisers.
