The air warm Saturday, but the waters of Lake Michigan were not. Nevertheless, that didn't stop the men and women of the Lakeview Polar Bear Club from taking a quick dip during the organization's eighth annual Polar Plunge.

The event raises money for families in need. Last year, it brought in more than $14, 000 to help a South Side family.
