Damn Good Giving – Austin Over the Edge

make a wish over the edge

Rappell for a cause with the W Hotel Austin, Make-A-Wish®, and Torchy’s Tacos. Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas helps grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions, many of whom depend on courage to overcome obstacles every day, At Austin Over the Edge, we challenge you to face your fears, step up to the edge, and rappel down the 38 stories (478 feet!) of Austin’s iconic W Hotel.  As an anchor sponsor, Torchy’s is sending two of our company partners, Fonz and Farrell, over the edge! 

The first 200 fundraisers to raise a minimum of $1,500 will earn a spot to go Over The Edge for Make-A-Wish June 14th & 15th, 2014. Find out how to raise money for Make a Wish and earn your spot! See ya’ at the top?

More about the Team Torchy’s rappellers:

 

“Fonz” had over 15 years of restaurant experience when he joined the ownership team of Torchy’s Tacos, where he is now the VP of Technology.  His interests include all things family, food, gadgets and guitars, so taking his first-ever Over the Edge leap will admittedly be outside his standard comfort zone. At the end of the day, this challenge is for Make-A-Wish®, and I couldn’t be happier to be supporting such a great cause. Bring it on!”

 

 

 

farrellFarrell Kubena, an independent business owner for over 30 years, found himself the perfect niche when opening Torchy’s Tacos in 2006. He is currently the VP of Business Development and admits he “wouldn’t trade places with anybody.”  When not scouring future locations for the company, Farrell enjoys adventuring the outdoors and continued travel with his wife and their two children.  This will be Farrell’s first time going Over the Edge for Make-A-Wish®.
