Going “Over the Edge” for a good cause

Local News

PEORIA, Ill., Two of WMBD’s very own reporters rappelled over the Peoria Pere Marquette Hotel Friday. 

This was a media-event to kick-start the “Over the Edge” event Saturday afternoon. 

If you donate $1,000 you too have the opportunity to go over the edge. 

This event will benefit Peoria Friendship House, an organization that provides assistance to individuals and families living in deep poverty. 

For those who aren’t up to the challenge, donations are still accepted. There will also be a block party in front of the hotel for people to watch others rappel from the building, drink, eat and fellowship.
