Maine's Camp Sunshine Postpones Ocean Dip Fundraiser
02/09/2013 9:00 AM ET  

A fundraising plunge into Maine's frigid ocean waters to benefit a camp for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families has been postponed.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Camp Sunshine was scheduled to hold its sixth annual Maine Polar Dip at Portland's East End Beach on Saturday. Due to the snowstorm, the camp has rescheduled the event for March 2.

Organizers have set a goal to raise $30,000, enough to send 15 Maine families to Camp Sunshine, which is located on Sebago Lake in Casco.

Camp Sunshine offers children with life-threatening illnesses and their families a place to relax and take a break together for a week. The camp has served 32,000 people since its inception in 1984.
