Five Foundation Financial Group executives went over the edge on Friday, and it was all in good fun as part of Foundation Financial Group’s corporate social responsibility program.
For the second year in a row, The North Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America challenged northeast Florida business leaders and residents to raise $1,000 or more each to rappel down the side of downtown Jacksonville’s AT&T Tower for its Over the Edge event. Over the two-day event, 92 people rappelled down the tower.
“The Foundation Financial Group team enjoyed supporting The North Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America from 450 feet in the air,” said Foundation Financial Group CEO Mark W. Boyer. “It was an exhilarating challenge and all for a good cause.”
CEO Mark W. Boyer, President Kris S. Williams, CFO Tanya L. Mauro, CIO Rolf Wilck and COO of Subsidiaries David Gueterman raised a total of $6,000 for the event. Mauro was ranked among the event’s top five fundraisers, raising nearly $2,000. The council’s goal was to raise $80,000 for the event, which organizers say it surpassed by more than $18,000.
