The weekend of February 8, non-profit Damar is bringing people together not only for a gala supporting their mission, but also to attempt a Guinness World Record.
Guests will participate with Damar Services in their effort to be the most people making sensory bottles simultaneously.
Damar is a nonprofit organization that provides a wide range of services to children and adults living with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities.
In their work, their go through a lot of sensory bottles — plastic containers filled with items such as glitter that move slowly when shaken.
Often referred to as calm-down bottles, they assist people with developmental disabilities by helping to calm their breathing and regulate their emotions.
Sensory bottles are super helpful tools for helping our clients manage their behaviors. So guests at the gala not only will be participating in a Guinness World Record title attempt, they’ll also be contributing to their work in a meaningful way.
Damar Services hope to produce 750 sensory bottles at the gala.
The finished bottles will be used at Damar’s ABA clinics and at outreach events in Central Indiana.
The Damar Gala, presented by Hendricks Regional Health and A&T Mechanical LLC, will take place at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, 350 W. Maryland St.
