Take a Leap this Weekend

May 17, 2019

Are you a thrill seeker?  Ocala is the place to be this weekend if you’re looking for an exciting, high adrenaline experience.  Join Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA) this Saturday, May 18th for Over the Edge Ocala, a thrilling fundraiser to support the arts.

MCA has joined forces with Over the Edge, the only urban rappelling event in the world.  Participants aim to raise at least $1,000 and rappel down one of Ocala’s tallest hotels.  Other ways to raise money include “Toss Your Boss,” where you and your coworkers must raise $2,500 and the chance send your boss over the edge of the hotel!  Don’t worry, they’ll be strapped up. 

For those too chicken to take the leap, you can support rappelers by donating more than $25 and get your name added to the “Chick-n-Coop.”  Names from the coop will be drawn throughout the event to win prizes and more!

The fundraiser also offers incentives to individual fundraisers including goody bags, souvenir photos, video coverage of the rappel experience, and a chance to win gift cards, passes to Canyon Ziplines, and invitations to the Liquid Courage VIP pre event party on May 17th.

MCA’s mission is to champion, convene, and create opportunities for artists, nonprofit art organizations, and the community.  The funds raised from Over the Edge will support this mission and help to create opportunities for artists, arts organizations, and the larger community.  For more information about this event visit Over the Edge Ocala.
