Official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® Attempt Will Raise Funds for Chicagoland Area Dog and Pet Charities

After the events of the past year, leash holders are practically begging for a reason to come out of their dens and celebrate with their dog.”

VILLA PARK, IL, UNITED STATES, September 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Members of the Villa Park Community F.U.N. (Focus on Unifying Neighbors) Commission have arranged for Robust Promotions, an award-winning sweepstakes and promotions agency to organize an attempt to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for Largest Dog Wedding Ceremony.

The attempt will be the centerpiece of the Paws & Claws in the Park animal adoption event slated for Saturday, September 25 at Lions Park, 320 E. Wildwood Ave. in Villa Park with all the wedding registration fees going to several local-area pet charities in attendance that day. Organizers are confident they will be able to draw from not only fellow DuPage County communities, but the entire metropolitan Chicago area. Villa Park is about 20 miles west of downtown Chicago.

In 2007, an event held in Littleton, Colorado established 178 canine couples as the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title in this light-hearted category. A November 2008 attempt in Oak Park, Illinois to break that record fell short when 87 canine couples came together.

Among the participants in that event was Robust Promotions president Leslie Allison-Seei, who has unleashed the idea of taking another crack at the mark. In addition to serving as chairperson of the Community F.U.N. Commission, Allison-Seei volunteers for several dog organizations, has frequently dressed up as a giant doggy for charity events and parades, and is recognized around town as The Dogmother of Villa Park.

Villa Park Village President Nick Cuzzone has agreed to be the “Doggy Do’s” officiant for the occasion. The ceremony begins at 10 a.m., kicking off the four-hour event. The $25 registration fee will be split between all the animal rescue groups that will be on hand. It will also feature a doggy speed-dating session, a variety of vendors, and training workshops provided by the Lyons Township Dog Training Club. Each dog will receive a Doggy Do’s Wedding Gift Bag and customized wedding certificate.

“After the events of the past year, leash holders are practically begging for a reason to come out of their dens and celebrate with their dogs,” says Allison-Seei. “We are also excited about raising money, and awareness, for these worthy charitable organizations.”

Among the event sponsors are Phillip’s Flowers & Gifts, which is creating the wedding arch that all the canine couples will march through; Ruff Life, which is supplying the Doggie Do’s Wedding Gift Bags; Fetch Portraits, which is building wedding sets for do-it-yourself portraits after the record attempt; and Pet Supplies Plus, which will be supplying a post-ceremony Goat’s Milk Champagne toast for all the doggy couples.

For more information, including details for rescues or vendors, or if you’d like to volunteer, email pride@invillapark.com, or visit pawsandclawsvp.com. (In case it’s raining cats and dogs on September 25, the event’s back-up date is slated for the following day, Sunday, September 26, 2021.) Those wishing to be part of the history-making event can register their dog at the Paws and Claws website.
