COLUMBIA, Md. (WNEW) – Several hundred people got together in Columbia on Sunday to take shaving cream to the face, and basically everywhere, for a good cause.

The Center Ring Circus School was trying to break the World Record for the “World’s Largest Shaving Cream Pie Fight,” but was about a hundred short at 751 people.

While it may not have broken the record, the event did raise money for Bridges to Housing Stability. The Howard County non-profit benefits homeless residents.

An “astronomical amount” of shaving cream was used at the event. Each participant had to use a paper plate with a minimum diameter of 7 inches in order to meet Guinness World Record Rules.
