Keasbey, NJ; September 24, 2009 – The ShopRite of Passaic-Clifton challenges the local community to participate in breaking the Guinness Book of World Records record by taking part in the world’s largest water fight, to raise funds to help feed the hungry.
The water fight will raise funds for ShopRite Partners In Caring, a community-based hunger-fighting charity which has donated more than $20 million to local food banks. Hunger-fighters of all ages are asked to make a $5.00 minimum donation to participate in the one-of-a-kind chance to become a part of water-fighting history. Approximately 3,000 people are needed to participate in order to break the record and be included in Guinness Book of World Records.
Presented by The ShopRite of Passaic-Clifton, in conjunction with the Passaic City Council and Mayor Dr. Alex Blanco, the world’s largest water fight will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 26 at Pulaski Park located at 100 4th Street, Passaic, NJ.
“We at the ShopRite of Passaic-Clifton are tremendously committed to the fight against hunger,” said Rafael Cuellar, owner and operator of the ShopRite of Passaic-Clifton. “I’m proud of my store associates’ passion in making a difference in the lives of those in need by coming up with new and creative ways to raise funds to feed the hungry. We hope that this water fight event is embraced by all community members and will be the first of many successful water fights to come.”
Water guns will be provided to all participants. All proceeds benefit The ShopRite Partners In Caring Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation of New Jersey.
