10th Year for 21 Stories For Scouts Annual Fundraising Event 

Over 60 volunteers (from registration to rope volunteers) helped to make the day successful.

On Friday, May 31, 2019, 114 participants rappelled Kodak Tower, 343 State Street, Rochester, on a 240-foot decent. Six media personalities rappelled on Thursday, May 30, 2019.

A total of $118,983 gross dollars were raised for over $92,000 net income. The event supports low-income youth in the Scouting program, especially in urban neighborhoods, so they can fully participate in Scouting and benefit from its character and leadership development.

Hilton resident Scott Copey, the acting director of Development Services for the Town of Greece, was provided the opportunity to rappel the Eastman Kodak Building in downtown Rochester on Friday, May 31, 2019. Copey said, "It's not something I ever thought I'd do, and it was very exciting. I'm proud to have had the opportunity to represent my friends and colleagues at Greece Town Hall and also raise money for important after school programs." Copey's son Sean, who was waiting for him at the bottom of the Kodak building with his mom said, "I think my dad rappelling is hilarious."
