Going “Over the Edge”
Recently, a member from our Marlins front office participated in a very unique fundraising opportunity. Beth McConville, Executive Assistant to CEO, President & Vice Chairman, was approached by a friend about joining an effort to raise money for Gilda’s Club South Florida – a local chapter of Gilda’s Club that provides support to those touched by cancer.
This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity presented by Gilda’s Club was executed by an organization called “Over the Edge.” “Over the Edge is a special events company that provides signature events for non-profit organizations around the world. Participants are invited to raise funds in exchange for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of going over the edge of a local building.”
Here’s an excerpt from Beth’s experience.
Last Saturday, I participated in an amazing event called “Over the Edge” for Gilda’s Club. We raised over $115,000 for this very worthy cause. I have several friends battling cancer right now, so this event really inspired me! I am so looking forward to participating again next year and raising even more money!!
