The World's Largest Dessert Party

On April 1st, 2015, Niagara College will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Dessert Party. To break the record, we will need 1000 people and 4000 desserts. Once our record breaking attempt is complete, there will be an exclusive after party with entertainment, prizes, food, and beverage. The profits raised during the World's Largest Dessert Party will go towards the Many Hands Project, now in its 18th year. The project brings awareness and a renovation to a deserving non-profit organization. This year's recipient is Strive Niagara in Welland, Ontario. Strive Niagara is a non-profit, social service organization dedicated to assisting the less-fortunate by fostering the independence of young families who are pursuing an education by providing quality childcare and other necessary supports.

Tickets: Minimum $5 donation for general, $20 for VIP


Location: Niagara College, 135 Taylor Road, Niagara-on-the-Lake

Contact: If you would like to break a Guinness World Record, be a part of dessert history, and help a well-deserving charity, then please purchase your tickets by either calling 905-641-2252x6406 or emailing dessertparty2015@gmail.com. #letsBREAKit
