‘Gimme 5’ at Glen Allen H.S. to benefit CATS Foundation

Students from Glen Allen High School will attempt to set the Guinness Book of World Records record for the most simultaneous high-fives on Saturday, May 12 at 1 p.m.

Prior to the attempt, a yard sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Individuals can purchase space for $10. Tables will not be provided. There will also be entertainment, a Jaguar car display and activities and games such as a football toss, cornhole, prize wheel, home run derby and more.

Admission to the yard sale is free. The cost to participate in the world record attempt is a $5 donation to the CATS Foundation. A $15 “Gimme 5” ticket will include a donation, as well as a meal from Nader’s and five activity tickets. The CATS Foundation is a collaborative organization made up of the Hermitage Panthers, Glen Allen Jaguars and Tucker Tigers. Students from the three schools will build a house starting in June 2013 and donate it to a needy Henrico family.
