Fall/Winter 2012


In order to raise money and awareness for our five charities, the penny guy Ryan Davis is preparing to set a new world record for the largest pyramid made entirely out of pennies. The Guinness record thus far sits at just over 600,000 pennies, which took roughly six months to construct. Ryan will attempt to shatter that with over 1,000,000 (one million) pennies and complete it all in less than 12 hours!

So if you've got a jar full of spare change and want to be a part of something Bigger & Better, then contact Ryan at 801-989-3001. More details coming soon.
