MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Parmenter Realty Partners reaches one million dollars in donations for the Special Olympics with its eleventh Over The Edge event held on April 25-26, 2014 at Buckhead Tower at Lenox Square in Atlanta, GA.
With the help of John Davidson, Managing Principal of Parmenter Realty Partners in Atlanta, and several Parmenter property employees, the event last week at Buckhead Tower, a 20-story office tower, raised over $155,000. John Davidson was the pioneer in bringing the Over The Edge concept to the Parmenter buildings back in 2009 when it was in its infancy as a fundraising strategy. The event last week was the second highest Over The Edge fundraising event held by Parmenter, pushing the total donations over the edge to reach the one million dollar milestone for the Special Olympics.
“Parmenter Realty Partners has always been committed to supporting the community, and our partnership with Over The Edge has provided us a unique and innovative way to use of our buildings for a worthy cause,” said Davidson. “Reaching the one million dollar milestone in total donations to the Special Olympics serves as a testament to what we stand for as corporate citizens. I went over the edge personally at our first event in 2009 and was pleased that I could go over the edge again this year to help push us over the one million dollar mark for the Special Olympics.”
Parmenter Realty Partners has an ongoing partnership with Over The Edge since 2009, a non-profit special events company that provides signature rappelling events for organizations throughout the world, including the United States, Canada, Central America, Europe and Australia. Parmenter has hosted a total of eleven Over The Edge events at several of its buildings throughout the United States, where local participants raised pledges for nonprofit organizations in exchange for a once-in-a-lifetime experience of rappelling off one of the buildings.
