Saturday, September 24, 2016
During Flannel Fest (11:00 am – 5:00 pm)
The attempt at the world record for Human Mattress Dominoes will take place during Champaign Park District’s fall event – Flannel Fest! Purchase a mattress to participate in Falling For a Cause today! View the sponsorship package here. Make a donation in any amount here.
We are setting a new world record with 2,000 Human Mattress Dominoes participants! This fun event doubles as a community project because the 2,000 mattresses are being DONATED TO FILL CENTRAL ILLINOIS SHELTERS like Courage Connection, Merci Refuge, Safe House for Men, and Restoration Ministries.
“I am excited for mattress dominoes, which gives Champaign the chance to break a world’s record and to provide mattresses to our local shelters. This event is an awesome opportunity to do good while having fun.” – Deborah Frank Feinen, Mayor, City of Champaign
These water resistant and bed bug resistant mattresses are available for purchase at a discount thanks to Bemco. Purchase of a mattress at the discounted rate of $200 each (available now through September 15, 2016) allows you to become a part of the world record. Each person or company who purchases a mattress will get to choose from a list of shelters where they would like their mattress to be donated. The Boy Scouts of Central Illinois will deliver the mattresses to the different shelters in Central Illinois–unless you prefer to deliver your donated mattress.
“It’s exciting when people and businesses in the community decide to make a difference for those less fortunate. United Way is proud to help with this effort!” – Sue Grey, President and CEO of United Way of Champaign County
“Be a part of a cool opportunity supporting a great event benefiting our own community. This is truly a community event!”– Big Mike, Mega Events/This Is It Furniture
