DARIEN, Conn. -- The Darien Youth Commission will attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the largest arm-linked toast Saturday at Darien Town Hall.
All are welcome to participate in the event, which will take just a little more than 30 minutes. Those who would like to participate should arrive at the Darien Town Hall gymnasium at 2 Renshaw Road by 2 p.m. on Saturday for the 2:30 p.m. toast.
“We are actively seeking participants to help make this happen. We need over 495 people to break the current record,” said Alicia Sillars, youth director of the commission.
Alex Hager, Blue Wave news announcer and senior at Darien High School will be the Master of Ceremonies for the event and the Darien Blue Wave mascot will also make an appearance.
The event will also benefit Person-to-Person by including a "Stuff A Truck" campaign. Participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation to benefit the P2P food pantry.
Suggested donations include spaghetti sauce, cereal, canned or dried soups, pancake mix, rice, beans, or macaroni and cheese.
Water bottles will be provided by Poland Spring for toasting and participants will receive coupons for complimentary items at supporting restaurants that include Bertucci’s (a free cookie sundae), Center Street Pub (a free soda, wine or beer), Darien Diner and Rory’s.
