On Sunday, February 1, 2015, over 3,000 people gathered on Rehoboth Beach, standing before the frigid waves of the Atlantic Ocean while they awaited their icy dip in its waters. The air temperature that morning was 41 degrees, and the water temperature was a near-freezing 37 degrees. The annual event raises money for Special Olympics Delaware, and this years’ event raised a record $780,000.
Among the participants was the “Abby’s Catsicles” team, comprised of Abby Galiardo and her family. The firm sponsored Abby’s Catsicles team, donating $100 in support of Abby and the Special Olympics Delaware. Capehart Scatchard wishes Abby and all the athletes the best of luck at the upcoming Summer Games in June.
