What is Hang Out?

On October 12-13, 2018, Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast will return to the IP Casino Resort Spa for our 4th Annual Hang Out with Habitat rappelling event.  A limited number of brave participants will rappel down the IP Casino from 300′ up taking in the views of the Gulf Coast while raising funds to benefit Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

No experience is necessary!  Anyone 18 or older, who is between 100 and 300 lbs. can rappel with a $1,000 tax deductible donation, or the commitment to raise $1,000 or more.  You will get the “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity to descend the outside of the IP Casino Resort Spa and help raise $100,000 to further Habitat MS Gulf Coast’s mission while raising funds for home repair and financial education efforts in our community – efforts that help our neighbors achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through adequate shelter.

The view from up top is amazing…reserve your spot today and we will create a personal fundraising page that enables friends, family, and colleagues to donate funds toward your rappelling adventure!

Over The Edge is a special events company that provides signature events for non-profit organizations anywhere in North America and its currently expanding globally.  Over The Edge to date has raised $70 Million for non-profits around the world.
