EMERALD ISLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Fishin’ For a Cure wants to show love to Emerald Isle and the surrounding community for their continued support.

On Saturday, several free family-oriented community events are slated to occur from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Starting at 9 a.m., the celebrity BRAA-Mingo plunge is taking place at the Western Beach Access point in Emerald Isle. 

Several local celebrities will take the plunge into the chilly Atlantic Ocean to raise money to further the cause to fight breast cancer. Eric Ross, Betsy Berndt, Bubba McLean, Matt Morrel, Abby Johnson, Jason Holland, Moh Traini, Natalie and Leonard Crumpler, Brynn Shoffner, Jimmy Farrington, Josh Sawyer and Saralyn Harris are plunging this year.
