On Saturday, February 26th a crew of Briess Employees donated their time and raised funds for the Green Bay Polar Plunge. Quality Control Technician, Cassie Hartfield, shared her experience at the event, “I thought the entire event was a blast.  It enabled us to get together with co-workers who we don’t always see as well as meet new ones while having fun and donating to a great cause. I think I had so much adrenaline before we plunged into the water that I didn’t have a lot of time to think about how cold the water would be. The plunge literally took my breath away, it was much colder than I anticipated it would be! I couldn’t get out of the water fast enough, that’s for sure!  It was such a good time and everyone who had plunged had agreed we will most definitely be doing this again next year! Even with our small group of 8 people, we were able to raise $720 dollars for the Special Olympics.”

This picture was posted on the Special Olympics web page right before our plunge.
