Italian American Club Of Hilton Head's Fundraiser:

The World's Largest Meatball Challenge

THE STORY:

There is no doubt that the Hilton Head Island area is a special community surrounded by immense beauty and wonderful people. But beyond the gates, the unspoiled beaches, and the pristine golf courses, Beaufort County is also home to large pockets of need and impoverishment. Many of our close neighbors are struggling with diverse issues and need assistance in many aspects of their lives. Among those, the most basic necessity – nourishment.

In light of this, on November 18th, The Italian-American Club of Hilton Head Island will fight to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for The World’s Largest Meatball. The current record holder weighed in at a hefty 1,110 lbs, 7.84 oz!  In celebration of our official attempt, we will host Meatball Madness... A one-day event on Hilton Head Island, SC. The day will blast off with The Meatball Run, a 5K race culminating at Shelter Cove Community Park, the location for the Meatball Madness Fest.  Guests are invited to attend the Brawl of the Balls, a competition for local restaurants and organizations to battle to be titled the area's Best Meatball in 3 distinct categories. Lastly, for those who are willing to put their speed-eating skills to the test, we will have a fierce Meatball Eating Contest. One day. Four record-breaking events.

Our goal in this? To raise funds and awareness for the hungry in our community.
