3-year-old Summer Marchante Gives to Salvation Army

Murrieta, CA (December 8, 2014) – Salvation Army Major Marcelino “Butch” Soriano loves kettle season. Each of the last three years, he’s participated in the national World Record Bell Ringing Competition, achieving a new record last year. He, Captain Jim Brickson of Albert Lea, Minn. and Andre Thompson of Tyler, Texas agreed to stop ringing at 105 hours.

There’s no official national competition this year, but Soriano refuses to lay down his bell. He has started the attempt to set a new world record for the longest continuous hand bell-ringing by an individual with a goal of 150 hours.  He began at 4:00 AM Monday, December 8 and is planning to finish on Sunday, December 14 at 10:00 AM.  He hopes to raise awareness for The Salvation Army’s 124th Red Kettle Campaign and kick off a historic new year for the Army.

“My goal is set for 150 hours because I’m excited to highlight the Army’s upcoming anniversary in 2015. I want to ring the bell for an hour to mark each year that The Salvation Army has been on the march, doing good for people around the world,” says SorianoRead More
