“You’re in the shark tank now,” is an expression that could take on a literal meaning for insurance agent Beth Hanlon when she takes a dip at the Long Island Aquarium to raise money for Aid to the Developmentally Disabled (ADD).

Hanlon is an Allstate insurance agent who has an office in Riverhead and Wading River, and is the Rotary president in her community. She is a past board member of ADD, an organization that runs 30 residential programs to provide care for patients with developmental disabilities.

The Riverhead Local reported she took part in the fundraising contest to swim with the sharks in the 120,000 gallon Lost City tank to raise funds for the charity as part of the third annual Shamrock Shindig. Her date with the fish, if she wins the contest, will take place on March 16.

So far, the Allstate agent has raised more than $1,000.
