Roy Tuscany of High Fives Non-Profit Foundation and SnowBomb.com are teaming up to make history and break the Guinness World Record for most high fives in one day at the fourth annual San Francisco Ski & Snowboard Festival.
The current record holder is Josh Dueck, who completed 9,307 high fives in a 24-hour period. Roy Tuscany, the founder of High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, is hoping to get at least 10,000 high fives on Saturday, Nov. 5 in San Francisco at the Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion. He is hoping to raise awareness for High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, which is an organization that is dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes that have suffered a life-altering injury while pursing a dream in winter action sports.
To be a part of the record-breaking attempt, attend the San Francisco Ski & Snowboard Festival and give Roy a high five at the entrance. If they don’t reach 10,000 at the festival, it will be moved to the Fishbowl on Divisadero Street. The San Francisco Ski & Snowboard Festival is the best place to check out the latest ski and snowboard gear for the upcoming winter and to taste premiere wines and boutique beers. Over 150 wineries and breweries will be on hand offering tastes. There will also be a big ski sale with over $1 million in ski and snowboard goods on-sale for up to 80 percent off.

Time: 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.
