A TIE WON’T DO: RBC BUSTS TIE-DYE RECORD

rbc tie dy 031815 1 rbc tie dy 031815 13Four-hundred-fifty-four students and teachers at Red Bank Catholic gathered in groovy casualwear Wednesday morning in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the “largest gathering of people wearing tie-dye.”

The event was a fundraiser, via $10 t-shirt sales, for the Make A Wish Foundation of New Jersey and dreamed up by senior Kaitlin Rogers of Allenhurst, above. The previous record was 250, she said; RBC’s must still be certified by Guinness.

The school’s annual carnival for Make A Wish, which enables wish fulfillment for young children with serious medical conditions, will be held this year on Saturday, May 16.
