Vince Vaughn, Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney Take Polar Plunge in Chicago (PHOTOS + VIDEO)
Jumping into freezing waters in late winter is pretty crazy, but there are certainly tougher things you could do for charity.
Vince Vaughn was the guest of honor at the annual Polar Plunge at North Avenue Beach in Chicago. Vaughn rocked a Chicago Blackhawks jersey as he took his icy dipped, joined by Chicago Fire stars Taylor Kinney, David Eigenberg and Randy Flagler. Also joining them was Kinney’s fiance, Lady Gaga. Fresh off her amazing performance at the Oscars last weekend, Gaga took the dip alongside Special Olympics Chicago President Casey Hogan over 4,500 other participants, eclipsing the 3,200 participants who showed up last year to take the dip with guest of honor Jimmy Fallon. Last year, over $1 million was generated for the Special Olympics Chicago, and this year’s haul stands to be even larger.
Lady Gaga posted photos of the event to her Instagram page, while video of Vaughn’s plunge has also surfaced. Check out the photos/video below:
