Sun Retreats Shenandoah Valley invites the Valley community for an off-season dip in the lake to benefit VAIL. Pledge fundraising is encouraged and prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers. There is a minimum pledge of $25 to participate – Dippers who raise $75 or more will receive a souvenir t-shirt! It’s VAIL’s most exhilarating fundraiser of the year.
