Taking the leap for a great cause, The Agency partnered with the Los Angeles Union Rescue Mission in their annual Over The Edge fundraising event on Saturday, October 3. Twenty-three members of The Agency team took to the roof of the Hilton to rappel 24 stories to help raise funds for the fight against homelessness. Together, The Agency’s brave team of dare devils spent months personally raising $25,579 for this incredible cause. The cheering section included our friends from Giveback Homes.
The Agency was the top fundraising team for the weekend event. Participants included Christine Agopian, Karine Aslanian, Ricardo Beer, Cody Carras, Gloria Castellanos, Makenzie Green, Craig Knizek, Ann Metzger, Josh Myler, Kathrin Nicholson, Stefan Pommepuy, Jeromy Robert, Gus Ruelas, Kate Schillace, Michelle Schwartz, Jason Walker and Jamie Waryck. It was a nail-biter for those rappelling and those watching from the ground.
Jeromy shared his bird’s eye view and personal account of the day in the video below.
