Chicago’s Lake Michigan was the scene for fundraiser for Special Olympics, where the celebrities took their polar plunge.
Maura Bruton, a spokeswoman for the event, confirmed Sunday that Gaga did the plunge along with more than 4,500 other participants.
Vince Vaughn, a Chicago native, took the plunge into the icy water sporting his Chicago Blackhawks jersey and jeans. He waded in up to his knees before slowly sinking backwards in the water.

The event is in its 15th years. Last year, Jimmy Fallon attended the event and helped raise more than $1 million.

Seems like what a celebrity is wearing when they make the plunge is a big deal. Last year, Fallon jumped into Lake Michigan wearing a suit and tie.
