Choosing which person to douse with freezing water was all part of the fun at Laggan Park on Sunday.
Safina Ashraf organised the Big Sunday Funday with friends at the park in Laggan Road, Maidenhead, to raise money for the children of Gaza.
The 33-year-old teacher at Newlands Girls' School in Farm Road said: "We made £1,000 just by giving people a chance to vote on who they doused with water."
They had to choose between policeman Murtaza Choudry, 34 and local man Safdar Akhtar, 34. They chose Safdar - a life-long Maidenhead man and former pupil at Ellington Primary School, now a dad, known for his crazy sense of humour.
Between 1,000 and 1,500 people attended the event.
Safina said: "When I was younger they had a Donkey Derby in the park every year.
"People said to me how good it was to see so many people in the park again."
She hopes the Sunday Funday can become an annual attraction.
A guest appearance by football freestyler Colin Nell was a great success.
There was also a rodeo bull with a prize for the child who could stay on longest.
The event has raised at least £8,000.
