Seattle, WA – “The best way to start a Friday!” – exclaimed Madeline Jacob, Promotions Project Coordinator for SPIRIT 105.3, when SPIRIT 105.3 and Redmond Town Center received news from GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® stating: “We are delighted to confirm that you have successfully achieved a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for ’Most People Dyeing Eggs’. We would like to congratulate you on your record-breaking achievement. You are OFFICIALLY AMAZING.”
On Saturday, April 19th, 2014, hundreds of SPIRIT listeners came out to Redmond Town Center to participate in the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® attempt. Despite the pouring rain and the wind, everyone braved the weather together and 582 people successfully dunked eggs in dye simultaneously. The previous record to beat was 317 participants. Redmond Police Chief Ron Gibson and Redmond Fire Department Chief Tommy Smith stayed after the event and counted the eggs, verifying the number.
Together, SPIRIT 105.3, Redmond Town Center and hundreds of SPIRIT listeners have made the history books! NWCN became a media partner also, and were the videographers for the official attempt. Smith Brothers Farms donated all the eggs, and the Redmond Marriott Town Center boiled them all the night before.
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® has added the record to their website with the official count. You can view it here.
