The event, which took place Saturday, raised more than $5,000 for the organization, The Detroit News reported.

At the event, the first for the city, participants were encouraged to dress in costume as they jumped into the 34-degree water.

Colin Consiglio, a Sylvan Lake police officer and organizer of the event, said he was pleased with the turnout and the funds raised.

"I said I'd be happy with $2,000 to $3,000 and as it sits now, we've already surpassed that," he said.
