In 2017, Over the Edge for VINE raised over $80,000 to put towards finishing the 5th Floor of the VINE Adult Community Center. In 2018, we raised over $70,000. Construction will soon begin to expand our Fitness Center to the 5th floor, but we still need more money to add additional meeting, exercises and studio space.
Over the Edge for VINE is an exciting fundraiser that gives individuals the chance to raise money to help finish the 5th floor of the VINE Adult Community Center, in exchange for the opportunity to rappel from the roof. Over 150 people have raised nearly 200,000 to help us finish the 5th floor of our building. Thanks to all our sponsors and supporters for helping us on this crazy adventure.
VINE Faith in Action was established in 1995, as an interfaith volunteer caregiving organization serving older adults, people with disabilities and individuals and families encountering difficult life situations.
Over the years, staff and programs have been added allowing VINE to assist with chores, meal on wheels, transportation, adult literacy, medical equipment rental, caregiver support, adult respite and an adult community center where aging adults can improve their physical health, socialize with peers and exercise their mind. Throughout its growth, VINE has remained true to its mission to promote quality of life and a culture of caring, sustained by volunteerism, community engagement and support for neighbors in need.
It was a great opportunity to try something new and push your comfort level. Raising funds for VINE, with its positive community reputation, made it easy.
The entire day made me smile! From my perspective, it went off without a hitch and it was fun to see costumes and different people participate and cheer people on. Love loved it!
Cool fundraiser, much better than selling junkfood or giftwrap!
We liked the unique nature of this event – a new and fresh idea that garnered a lot of attention, which resulted in a lot of media coverage and social media chatter, which resulted in a very successful event.
This event couldn’t have been conducted in a more professional manner. I never felt more comfortable doing something totally out of my comfort zone. The best!!!
Thanks to all our sponsors who helped us this year!
