Cleveland photographers share in the excitement of Over the Edge for Hattie Larlham.
To match the fun-loving environment that Hattie Larlham provides to its residents, the organization hosted a thrilling fundraising event July 1st & 2nd. Michelangelo’s event photographers were able to beautifully capture this exciting Cleveland event.
Fundraisers that met or exceeded a fundraising goal of $1,500 were invited to rappel over the rooftops of Cleveland.
Participants began their 220-feet descent at the Cleveland Westin Downtown hotel. Down below, our Cleveland event photographers were joined by hundreds of other Cleveland residents to watch the fundraisers glide above the rooftops.
Over 70 fundraisers strapped in to enjoy stunning panoramic views of Cleveland from a bird’s eye perspective. Participants were welcomed from above to sweeping views of Lake Erie, Brown’s Stadium, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum, and many other popular Cleveland attractions.
Cleveland photographers of Michelangelo’s Photography were thrilled to volunteer there photography skills at the exciting event.
