FORT MYERS, Fla. – January 19, 2015 – Leadership from Six Bends Harley-Davidson® and Naples Harley-Davidson® are supporting Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida in a big way on Sunday, Feb. 14, participating in the non-profits’ fundraising event “Over the Edge.”
Gil Gibson, General Manager of Six Bends Harley-Davidson, and John Tabar, General Manager of Naples Harley-Davidson have committed to raising funds in an effort to support the local non-profit, where they will rappel down all 18 stories of the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples.
Over the Edge is a national leader in providing economic education programs. Their mission is to teach children and young adults financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship.
