SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS – IBC Bank-San Antonio, in collaboration with The Witte Museum and Over the Edge Global, teamed up on the two-day Urban Rappelling Fundraising Event benefitting the children of Boysville on Friday, Sept. 20. The IBC Bank team, including First Vice President Bernardo De La Garza, Assistant Vice President Graham Pearson, Treasury Management Officer Jesse Munoz, Bank Operations Officer Davis Solis and IBC Bank mascot “Freebie”, had the opportunity to rappel 14 stories off of the Embassy Suites Riverwalk Hotel in downtown San Antonio. IBC Bank contributed $15,000 in sponsorship to the “Over the Edge” event.
All the proceeds collected went towards the Boysville mission to help transform lives of children and their families.
“It is truly amazing to see our team come together to make a difference in our community,” said IBC Bank-San Antonio president & CEO Mike Sohn. “We are proud to support this fundraiser. We appreciate the work Boysville does for the children and families not only in San Antonio, but throughout Texas.”
Boysville, the Home with a Heart, was founded in 1943 and provides food, clothing, shelter and essential services for over 300 children a year who have experienced abuse, neglect and family crisis.
“IBC Bank’s commitment to ‘Do More’ in the communities we serve is what sets us aside from the rest,” said Dennis E. Nixon, Chairman and CEO of IBC Bank. “I congratulate the San Antonio team for going out of their comfort zone for such an important cause.”
With the successes from the Urban Rappelling Fundraising Event, IBC Bank looks forward to making this unique rappelling experience and event an annual tradition moving forward.
