Rapelling for money
Rubianne Rubio of Bella Vista takes her turn Saturday during the Sunshine School and Development Center’s rappelling fundraiser Over The Edge at the 8W Center in Bentonville. The school began a campaign in January, with participants who reached their fundraising goal able to participate in rappelling from the roof of the six-story building. Over the Edge is a company which specializes in producing events for nonprofit groups using equipment and techniques used in commercial rope-access work such as sign installation and window washing. The event had raised more than $57,000 for the school, with more donations still coming in Saturday morning. Located in Rogers, the Sunshine School & Development Center serves children and adults with developmental disabilities, including a preschool.
