Comedian hosts Heritage Day world record attempt
Durban - Masood Boomgaard, journalist, comedian and now, hopeful Guinness World Record holder will be hosting a Heritage Day braai-a-thon on Thursday, national Heritage Day.
The initiative is backed by Red Bull, Star Meats, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Coo-ee and Durban Street Food Festival.
It will see Mr. Boomgaard braai, non-stop, for 80 hours starting on Thursday.
The record will not only solidify South Africa's braai capital of the world status, but will also feed the hungry.
Mr. Boomgaard told Newsful that while there were no specific charities the cooked food would be distributed to, he was open to suggestion. Today, in a personal Facebook post, he called for the names of charities to be submitted to him.
"This [is] arguably the craziest thing I've done, but it's for a good cause. We are going to be feeding some hungry people. So if you know of any homes or shelters that would benefit from this and are willing to help get the food to them, please hit me up."
