New Years Day Temperatures in the 20's did not detour the handful of skiers from getting out on the river.
The New Years Day Polar Bear Ski was a fundraiser event for the Missouri Disabled Water-ski Association.
U.S. Water Ski Champion and Creve Coeur resident Kevin Day has been coming to this event for 27 years.
To date, Kevin has raised over $86,000 for the charity. The money raised is used to purchase specialized water-ski equipment for the disabled.
