Donnie Dwyer Takes "The First Step" off Top of Doubletree Hotel

Double D off the Doubletree. Our own Donnie Dwyer rappelled ten stories down the Doubletree hotel in downtown Binghamton.

But not because he's crazy, which he is. But, instead to help Catholic Charities' "The First Step" fundraiser. The event is raising money to help people take the first step to overcome obstacles and seek the help they need to transform their lives.

"People know that Catholic Charities does a lot of good but they don't know much about our services. We service people who have mental health issues, developmental disabilities, as well as youngsters at risk of abuse and neglect. We provide residential services," said Lori Accardi, Executive Director of Catholic Charities.

Catholic Charities hopes to raise as much as $35,000 from the event.
