Who doesn’t love a great high five? It’s the perfect expression of excitement. The guys of SnowBomb.com and the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation have decided to work together to make history at the fourth annual San Francisco Ski & Board Festival by attempting to break the record for the most high fives in one day!

Don’t miss out on being part of history! The Guinness World Record currently belongs to Josh Dueck, who completed 9,307 high fives in a 24-hour period. Roy Tuscany, founder of High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, an organization devoted to helping athletes who experience life-changing injuries, will be attempting to receive at least 10,000 high fives Saturday, Nov. 5th, in San Francisco at the Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion.

Attending the San Francisco Ski & Snowboard Festival, where each attendee will slap a high five with Roy Tuscany until the 10,000 mark is hit. If it is not achieved that day the party will continue at the Fishbowl on Divisadero Street. It is guaranteed Roy Tuscany will have a very sore hand Sunday, Nov. 6th. He hopes to raise awareness for athletes who have suffered life-altering injuries while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community.

You may ask, Why here? Why now for this momentous feat? It is simply due to the fact that the San Francisco Ski & Board Festival is a fantastic venue! It combines the latest ski and snowboard gear and tasting premiere wines and boutique beers. More than 150 wineries and breweries will be attending and offering tastes of their newest flavors. Three free lift tickets are included with each admission. Get your tickets today. For more information visit www.snombomb.com.
