LaQuinta Inns Mattress Drop 28 February 2012.
"LaQuinta Inns & Suites plans to break the Guinness World Record for the world's largest human mattress domino drop. The hotel chain will attempt to break the record at 9:00am on Feb28, 2012 as part of a team-building exercise during its annual conference, to be held in New Orleans from February 26 thru 29, 2012 at the NO Convention Center. LaQuinta intends to assist the City of New Orleans in the implementation of its Ten Year Plan to end Homelessness. LaQuinta will provide 840 new Simmons mattresses for this project to be used in the drop. The mattresses will then be donated to local Homeless Services Agencies following the event. Ozanam Inn will send 5 volunteer workers and one or two staff to help in the unloading, set up, the drop and the eventual removal of the mattresses once the event is completed. LaQuinta has agreed to provide Ozanam Inn with 96 of the new mattresses to use as needed, once the event is completed.
