As part of the 11th Annual Seneca Waterways Council “21 Stories For Scouts” rappelling event on September 4th, Fred Lehmann, Pina LaDelfa, Geoff Cook, Amanda Mnich, Kodie Tompkins, Autumn Sample and David Cox accepted the challenge to defy gravity by rappelling around 21 stories down the historic Kodak Tower in downtown Rochester to support the Seneca Waterways Council Urban Scouting program.

“GLA was so happy to partner with Taylor, the Builders and participate in this year’s 21 Stories event,” said GLA President, Joseph O’Donnell. “It is not often you get to experience something incredible & new all while supporting a local cause.”

“I’m so glad Taylor ‘pushed me over the edge’ for this unique event,” said David Cox, Associate and Project Manager at Passero. “It was a great experience, not many people can say they have rappelled down Kodak Tower. A special thanks to Taylor for organizing a team and raising money for a great cause.”

Five out of the seven participants enjoyed supporting this event for the first time (Geoff’s third and Fred’s second), while TAYLOR as a company has supported since 2012. Joining together for one common goal on the Rochester skyline was current TAYLOR Vice President and Project Manager, Fred Lehmann; TAYLOR Controller, Pina LaDelfa; and TAYLOR Director of Marketing and Business Development, Geoff Cook. Long-time project partners Kodie Tompkins, Architect Intern; Amanda Mnich, Architect Intern; and Autumn Sample, Intern, represented Greater Living Architecture. David Cox, Associate/Project Manager at Passero Associates, also joined the team for this exhilarating fundraising adventure.

In addition to TEAM TAYLOR, more than 75 local business leaders and scout supporters took advantage of this unique fundraising event.
