Big Sisters of Atlantic and Cape May Counties takes fundraising to new heights
with Over the Edge, a unique fundraising event that offers participants the exhilarating
opportunity of rappelling down a 15-story building. Scheduled for Saturday,
September 24th at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel
in Atlantic City, Over the Edge allows participants to rappel over 175 feet in
a completely safe environment.
Over the Edge as one of our main fundraisers for the year because it has such
tremendous potential to raise both funds and awareness for our mission,” said
Eric Reich, President of the Board of Directors of Big Brothers Big Sisters of
Atlantic and Cape May Counties. “With dozens of participants rappelling down
the side of one of Atlantic City’s landmark buildings, Over the Edge is bound
to attract attention to Big Brothers Big Sisters, and to the city itself.”
Big Sisters also has the support of Corporate Chair, Michael Cohan of New
Vistas Corporation. Cohan has hosted a Big Brothers Big Sisters Mini-Golf
Fundraiser for the last 13 years, and has supported the organization personally
as a former board member.
