Help Set A Guinness World Record

7/5/2012

A Vancouver man is trying to break a world record, but needs the public’s help. Deputy Sherriff Hovig Gurlekiam is trying to set the world record for the highest penny tower. The current record stands at 650 thousand pennies; Gurlekiam’s goal is one million. All funds raised goes toward the BC children’s hospital foundation. Gurlekiam says he has been working on this project for two years however, due to the pennies demise he is pushing to have the tower complete for Canada Day 2013.

A venue for the pyramid is yet to be determined. Right now, he is figuring out the details for a province wide contest.  For those who would like to donate money instead of pennies can do so online, Gurlekiam will then exchange that money into pennies.

Penny donation boxes have been set up at various businesses across the region. If you would like a penny jar contact the Nelson Sheriff’s office or go online to sunbeamcanada.org
