habachat.com, your local town's social network, is attempting to break Four Guinness World Records while raising money for hometown hockey on November 10th, 2012.
On November 10th, we are looking for pub-crawlers for our first community challenge and social fundraiser, the Canadian Home Town Hockey Pub Crawl. All participating bars will donate proceeds to local hockey initiatives. In addition, for each drink purchased at eligible bars, individuals have an opportunity to win magnificent prizes. For teams looking to raise money, this is a simple fundraiser where they can build team spirit, have lots of fun, be part of four world records and retain all funds raised by their team just by selling raffle tickets for chance to win over $25,000 in prizes.
We are looking to gather over 5,000 participants to break the current largest pub crawl world record set in Australia with 4,718 in June 2009.
At each bar, crawlers will be scanned with their unique QR code (provided for free upon registration) in an attempt to track and break the following four Guinness World Records:
1. The Largest Pub Crawl. (Over 4,800 people needed to break current record)
2. The Longest Pub Crawl, 150 Miles from 1 Yonge Street to bars in Orillia – a new record.
3. The Most Funds Raised on a Pub Crawl as part of a fundraiser.
4. And the Most Charitable Funds Raised for Home Town Hockey in a pub crawl – A new record.
“Hockey, although in the hearts of all Canadians, is a sport declining in registration, because of aging demographics and rising costs. The money raised at bars will be used to award hockey scholarships in their local markets to kids who cannot afford to play hockey.“, says Debbie McGrath, CEO of habachat.
Participation is free of charge. A list of local bars participating will be available on the website 4 days in advance of the event. Any bar is welcome to participate and be part of the world record.
