The Lee Lake Polar Plunge in Cazenovia had several people coming together to raise money for cancer and cancer research Feb. 24.

The total donation for the event, which included a Chinese raffle, bake sale, live auction and silent auction, was $27,500 to go towards the American Cancer Society and Greater Richland Cancer Elimination. Over 60 people jumped into the frigid Lee Lake, some wearing their best costumes, in memory of those who have battled and lost their lives to cancer.
