Most World Records ever attempted in 90 minutes

Who: La Quinta Inns & Suites Wayne Goldberg (President & CEO) Standard Textile Greg Eubanks (Group VP)

Fisher House
Tripler AMC, Honolulu
When: Friday, March 14, 2014 @ 2:30 pm

Where: Waikoloa Bowl at Queens' Gardens (parking also available at Queen’s Marketplace)
69-201 Waikoloa Beach Dr. ~ Waikoloa Village, HI 96738

What: La Quinta Inns & Suites, the nationwide hotel brand, will be attempting not one but three Guinness World Records and giving back to the community. More than 1,100 people will participate to break the following Guinness World Records:
  •   The Longest Human Towel Chain
  •   The Longest High-Five Chain
  •   The Largest Towel Mosaic
    If all three records are attained, it will be the most records attempted in 1 1⁄2 hours.
How: More than 1,100 people will join together by holding a towel in each hand and circling the Waikoloa Bowl to create the world’s longest towel chain. They will then drop their towels and high-five the person next to them to generate the world’s longest high-five chain. As they exit the Waikoloa Bowl, each person will lay down their towel to create a 27,845 square foot towel mosaic to form the U.S. flag. A Guinness adjudicator will be on-site to verify the attempt’s success and present the World Record certificate.

Why: Following the event, La Quinta will donate more than 2,500 towels used during the event to Fisher House Tripler AMC in Honolulu. Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment.

These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve.
