Not satisfied, in 2007, Jarrett broke his own record in Casco, Maine. Standing 31 feet, six inches tall, the Guinness World Record-holding structure was sculpted in an event known as the “Castle to the Sun” and designed to raise money for Camp Sunshine. Over a period of two months, more than 1,000 people volunteered to help build the castle, which required 40 dump truck loads of sand.
In the spring of 2011, Ed Jarrett broke his own record at Winding Trails in Farmington, Connecticut. The project raised money for charity, with Save Walton Pond at Winding Trails and Special Olympics Connecticut as its marquee beneficiaries.
Now, World Renowned Sculptor Ed Jarrett has joined with longtime college friend and New Jersey resident and business owner Alan Fumo to build the Sandy Castle on Jenkinson’s Beach in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey. Stay tuned as we attempt to reach 50 feet tall, breaking Ed’s current world record with 100 percent of all proceeds and donations from admission directly going to provide “need based charitable assistance” to local residents and businesses struggling to recover from Superstorm Sandy.
