Kelly Rhodes

About Me

Kelly Rhodes, of Jill and Kelly Realtors with Keller Williams Realty, is excited to go OVER THE EDGE to help Habitat for Humanity raise fund for families in need of housing on the Mississippi Coast. Kelly is prepared to rappel down the side of the IP Casino to raise awareness and funding for Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. As a local realtor, Kelly has made her career helping families find their dream home. Habitat for Humanity gives families the opportunity for home ownership who otherwise might not be able to realize that dream. Kelly’s goal is to raise $1500 for Habitat so she can share the rappel experience with everyone through her GoPro. The audio feed alone should be priceless. When she began college, Kelly’s goal was to become a pilot. She has skydived both tandem and solo. No thrill is too risky for this hard charging determined lady! Jill Taylor, of Jill and Kelly Realtors with Keller Williams Realty, is willing to hold the rope.

Mayor Billy Hewes

About Me

From an early age, I have enjoyed challenges and at times, extreme sports! When the City of Gulfport was approached by Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast asking for our participation and representation, I knew this was our chance to step up and “step off” a ledge for a great cause. The team at Habitat of the Mississippi Gulf Coast continues to bring together people to build homes, communities and hope and we are honored to be a part of this monumental event. I ask that you join me in supporting Habitat for Humanity to raise funds for their continued success!

As chair of the event last year, we had fun, raised over $100,000, and helped them create forever homes for those who need them. We are now climbing higher & raising more!

Collette Poppendieck

About Me

I am fundraising for Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I need to raise $1,500 to participate in this event. Please contribute to this great cause, and come see me rappel down the IP Casino! On Saturday, October 14, 2017, Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast is sponsoring a great event at the IP Casino in Biloxi. Fundraisers will rappel down the IP building! This event will be a lot of fun and raise funds to build a new home for a deserving family. Please help me make this event a success by donating to my campaign. And those of you that know me, know that I am afraid of heights, so you can come and watch me conquer one of my greatest fears!
