Guinness World Records, registered in London, England, officially confirms that MOM now holds the Guinness World Record for “Most People Making S’mores Simultaneously”, attempted the Bonfire Bash at KEVA Sports Center on September 5, 2015, a benefit to Prevent Homelessness through MOM, with 407 people participating.”While the goal was to set a Guinness World Record, the most important part of the event is that we raised funds to help Prevent Homelessness in our community,” said Bret Newcomb, President of Newcomb Construction, the presenting sponsor of the event. “We are excited about both now holding the record and the awareness this event brought to this important issue.”
“Approximately 25% of the kids in MOM’s service area live in poverty and are at risk of becoming homeless. This past year, MOM distributed over $100,000 in housing program assistance, which is combined with Case Management and financial counseling,” said Al Ripp, Executive Director at MOM. “Combined with use of the Food Pantry, the goal is to keep families stable and in their homes and prevent them from the stress and instability of homelessness.”
Amy Carlson, NBC15 and Bucky Badger led the countdown and attempt.
