Florida group makes record 1,200-foot sundae for charity

Palm Beach County charity event breaks record for world's biggest sundae

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - A Palm Beach County charity event apparently has set a world record for longest ice cream sundae.

The Palm Beach Post reports that more than 1,000 people turned out Sunday to help build the 1,250-foot sundae at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens. The sundae was laid out in connected troughs that snaked through two ballrooms

The participants paid $30 per family to participate in building and then eating the sundae. The confectionery delight raised money for the Alliance for Kids, which helps hospitalized children.

The Guinness Book of World Records currently recognizes a 1,101-foot concoction made in June by a group in White Bear, Minn. An independent observer watched Sunday's effort and will attest to Guinness that the record was broken.
