Over the past several months, The Ohlmann Group has been honored to work with this great non-profit to bring Over the Edge, a monumental fundraising event, to life. Both a media day and public event took place last week during Downtown Dayton Partnership’s Urban Nights, sparking community curiosity about the event and the organization itself and raising funds to help support the Big Brothers Big Sisters mission of improving the lives of children facing adversity and transforming the communities in which they live, by providing strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 mentoring relationships.
