…for hugs, that is: On Friday 8/19, Nick Cannon, host of the Rollin with Nick Cannon Morning Show on CBS Radio’s 92.3 NOW NYC, is teaming up with the New York Mets to break the world record of the most hugs in one hour—that needs to be over 1,800 hugs.
“I would like to invite everyone to come help me break the Guinness World Record and let’s ‘Hug it Out’.” said Cannon.
Paper Jamz from WowWee will donate one toy for every hug to benefit the children at the Mets Care Room at the New York Hospital of Queens as well. The first 100 fans to hug Cannon receive Mets tickets for Friday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers at 7:10 p.m. All 2,000 huggers receive a commemorative Hug It Out t-shirt. The event begins 5:30 p.m. on Mets Plaza next to the Mets Home Run Apple at Citi Field in Flushing, NY.
