PRVideo.TV Goes Over the Edge!

October 17, 2012

I feel fortunate to have traveled all over the world and work in places such as Fiji, Israel and Japan. After last weekend I can add a new adventure to my list. It’s a place few men or women have ever traveled, the top of The Westin™ Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles, 32 stories straight up! The Boy Scouts of America hired PRVideo.TV to take still photos of their Over the Edge 3 fundraising event. The goal was to raise $100,000 for the Boy Scouts of America and inner city programs for kids in Los Angeles. What an exciting event to witness first hand!


The news camera crews gathered below and helicopters hovered overheard anticipating the start of the event. Crowds of people gathered to take pictures and cheer on the participants. This year sixty brave participants rappelled along 367 feet of shimmering glass windows to the safety of terra firma. What a rush! Arthur “Tri” Fritz, Director of Annual Giving for the Los Angeles Area Council, Boy Scouts of America (Office: (213) 413-4400 x313 | tri.fritz@boyscoutsla.org) offered me a chance to handle the ropes myself but I passed. Maybe next year!

The Los Angeles skyline was a sight to see and everyone involved had a great blast. Best of all, we were all there raising money for a great cause!

Be sure to check out the website for Over The Edge 3 and if you happen to watch the ABC News Video see if you can spot me up on the roof! 🙂
