    Providence Community Library (PCL) will partner with Over the Edge and Regency Plaza Apartments for a second year to create Rappel for PCL, a truly memorable fundraising experience that should have pride of place on anyone’s bucket list! Individuals and teams will rappel down the 150 feet high Regency Plaza Apartments building on Saturday, May 4, to help raise $100,000 for the nine neighborhood locations of Rhode Island’s largest library system.
     
    Visit the event page to reserve a spot and create a personal or team fundraising page that will enable friends, family, and colleagues to donate funds toward their rappelling adventure. No previous experience of climbing or rappelling is necessary!
     
    Businesses and organizations can take advantage of a range of sponsorship opportunities and/or send a team of three or more Fearless Leaders over the edge. PCL will provide such teams with a range of fundraising resources and document their rappelling adventure through images and videos that can shared online or shown at company retreats, annual meetings and other events. 
    • Two people who partner up to rappel together as Fearless Friends and register by March 15 can each take $100 off their minimum fundraising goal   
    • The first 20 participants who register and pay the deposit will get a VIP Pass for free entry on the day of their choice at any Rock Spot Climbing location       
    • Never rappelled? Then try it for free! Rock Spot Climbing’s experts will show you how to rappel on their 40 feet indoor rock wall at a special Trial Rappel event on March 30, 10:00AM – 12:00PM at their Lincoln location. The Trial Rappel is open to everyone.  
    “Everyone who took part in the 2018 event thought it was an amazing experience and many Edgers are already planning to rappel again,” said PCL Library Director, Cheryl Space. “While the rappelling goes on up high, we’re planning to hold a fun, May the Fourth Day-themed carnival event at the same time on the ground. Rappel for PCL will be a rewarding experience for the sponsors who take the opportunity to invest in such an innovative fundraiser,” she added.
