On Saturday, Feb. 4, 185 hearty souls jumped into the 40 degree water of Lake Anne at Lake Anne Plaza to raise over $73,000 for Camp Sunshine (www.campsunshine.org), a camp in Casco, Maine devoted to serving families that have a child with a life-threatening illness. Started by the Toth family of Vienna five years ago, the fundraiser has become a popular event at Lake Anne Plaza, with 71 more jumpers than last year.
