While breaking a world record is exciting on its own, Boarderie also took it a step further by donating all the food that was used. In fact, after the event held in Palm Beach, Florida, the company’s home base, the charcuterie board was immediately sent to a local nonprofit organization — The Lord’s Place in West Palm Beach, whose mission is to help the unhoused. Besides donating the food from the event, the world record certificates were also sold at auction for $10,000, which was also donated to the same charity.
Helping out the local community of Palm Beach seems to be a major goal of Boarderie today, and the company has often reached out to help in times of need, like when they donated free meals to power company employees working to restore electricity after multiple major storms in Florida. According to the Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Boarderie, Aaron Menitoff, the goal of the company is to facilitate “experiences every day that bring people together around celebrations and social occasions that start conversations.” This event proved to be a success on both fronts.
