Guinness World Record For Most People Making Beds at A Single Venue

Bedding Industry Comes Together To Widen Awareness of Pancreatic Cancer

Sponsored by Atlanta-based Serta Simmons Bedding along with support of DreamFit, Springs Creative, The Bedding Industry and Furniture Today, Guinness World Record History was made May 15, 2015 said Serta Simmons CEO Gary Fazio who served as the Honorary Chairman of the 13th Annual Seena Magowitz Golf Classic held at the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate.

This achievement serves to spotlight and celebrate the mission and message of the Seena Magowitz Foundation and its tremendous efforts to raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer research, as well as the bedding industry’s unwavering support of the cause. It was amazing to see such unification and shared commitment to the cause of defeating pancreatic cancer.

“Serta Simmons Bedding has been hugely instrumental in helping the Seena Magowitz Foundation advance the fight against pancreatic cancer by finding unique ways to expose new audiences to our lifesaving mission,” said Roger Magowitz, founder and chairman of the Seena Magowitz Foundation. “This Guinness World Record attempt is a refreshing opportunity to bring people together for some lighthearted fun while shedding light on this disease.”

Serta and Simmons each donated 35 twin-size mattresses, foundations and bed frames for the event. Bed linens manufacturer DreamFit donated sheets, pillowcases, pillows, duvet covers and inserts. Throw blankets were donated by textile manufacturer Springs Creative.

“Every Guinness World Records attempt is a unique and fun occasion that memorializes a significant achievement. Participants in this successful record attempt at the most people making beds, most importantly, have raised awareness and monies that will positively impact research into an awful disease,” said Philip Robertson, Guinness World Records adjudicator.

Serta Simmons was the Signature Sponsor of the 13th Annual Seena Magowitz Golf Classic and the sponsor of the Furniture Today Bedding Conference. Both events were held during the same week in Orlando, Florida. Gary Fazio, CEO of Serta Simmons presented a $600,000 check to the Seena Magowitz Foundation for donations raised through a fundraising contest between teams at Serta and Simmons.
