A fabulous foursome in North Texas set a Guinness World Record in an attempt to “Kiss Hunger Goodbye” Sunday at Klyde Warren Park.
“The Mistlecrew” organized an event and got 350 couples to kiss simultaneously to set the world record, all while raising money for the North Texas Food Bank.
“For us, it's really about, 'What can we do to make sure everyone else gets what they want?' and it has just made everything worth so much more,” said original founder, Stella Wrubel.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Quinn, Trevor, Stella and Isabella are back for a seventh year with a big plan. For the past few years, this group has sold mistletoe every December.
“We have a $10, $20 and a $30 one,” Trevor Godkin explained.
Every single dollar raised has gone straight to the North Texas Food Bank.
Last year, that meant $60,000!
“We've now fed half a million people which is more meals than all four of us have had combined in our whole lives," Isabella Dickason said.
This year will bring a whole new challenge.
“It really feels great to make a difference in people’s lives. I really like this, I think I'm going to keep going, Wrubel said. "So, the foursome hatched a plan to “Kiss Hunger Goodbye.”
“This Sunday at Klyde Warren Park, we are going to try to break a Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously kissing under the mistletoe,” Quinn Graves said in advance of Sunday.
They asked couples to go to Dallas’ deck park to kiss.
"You have to be 18, it has to be 5 seconds, lip to lip. It has to be 6-inch mistletoe, which is up to us and it doesn't have to be a romantic relationship. Just two people,” Graves explained.
They have set their so-called “success-o-meter” at $70,000 this year. Each couple pays $25 dollars to participate. Every dollar feeds three people in need.
