Two Holiday Inn Club Vacations Brand team members put help over their fears to support Give Kids The World by rappelling 38 floors off of one of Orlando’s iconic hotels on Friday, February 9. IT Manager Jimmy Dean and Operations Specialist Christina Perez, raised nearly $6,000 as part of the Over The Edge fundraiser which provides those individuals that raise a certain amount of money the opportunity to rappel off of a high-rise building. This year the Hyatt Regency Orlando hosted the event with more than 60 individuals taking the challenge to raise funds for the charity while challenging themselves to do go over the edge and descend to the bottom of the hotel. Give Kids The World expects to raise more than $100,000 from these individuals efforts. The event still have a few rappelling slots left. Individuals that contribute $1,000 can show up today at the hotel located on International Drive across from the Orange County Convention Center and get a chance to test their courage.
The Holiday Inn Club Vacations Brand has supported Give Kids The World since its inception, providing more than $2 million in financial support. In addition, the company supports the charity through individual fundraising events, team member volunteer efforts and through title sponsorship of the Hope In One Celebrity Golf Tournament scheduled for April 30 this year.
