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! 🙂

Blue September & Facing Up to Prostate Cancer

October 4, 2012
  • In 2012, more than 240,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 33,000 men will die from prostate cancer.
  • One new prostate cancer case occurs every 2.2 minutes.
  • A man dies from prostate cancer every 15.6 minutes.

September was Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and PRVideo.TV worked along side Blue September and Tellem Grody PR to capture the heartfelt mission of the Los Angeles awareness event at City Hall on video and in photo stills. Blue September is a critically acclaimed international awareness campaign founded to increase awareness of prostate cancer. During September people are encouraged to paint their faces blue to increase outreach and help save lives.

Councilman Tom LaBonge, Radiation Oncologist Dr. Howard Sandler, Kaley Todd from California Walnuts, Daniel Zenka from the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Geoff Burton, Blue September’s International Spokesperson, and other supporters gathered for the “Blue Tie” event and the lighting of LA City Hall blue. The event was a huge success for Blue September and we look forward to their Los Angeles return next year!
