WGTS 91.9 Goes ‘Over the Edge’ for Haitian Orphans
(Washington, D.C.) – Three WGTS 91.9 announcers recently rappelled down a 17-year-story building to help raise money for Haitian orphans. “Over the Edge” is a yearly event encouraging people to face their fears by rappelling from tall buildings to raise money for charity, specifically the Holistic Haitian Alliance this year. This D.C. area charity provides food, clothing, housing, education, and medical care for close to 100 Haitian orphans.
“This is the third consecutive year that I’ve climbed down the building,” says WGTS Morning Show Host and Marketing Director Jerry Woods. “I was a little apprehensive the first year, but now it’s so much fun. It’s such an incredible way to support kids, and as a dad, I never want to see a child suffer.”
WGTS Afternoon Show Hosts Johnny and Stacey Stone broadcasted live from the event and even talked with Jerry Woods while he was rappelling down the building with his morning co-host Summer Shepherd. All total, 86 rappellers raised almost $200,000 for the Holistic Haitian Alliance.
