What better way to cure cancer than with ice cream?!?!
I’ve got to admit that Graeter’s is one of my all-time favorite ice creams. It’s a regional thing here in the Cincinnati area. So when I was asked to help spread the word about the Cones for the Cure campaign…there was no way I was going to say no.
The Cure Starts Now and Graeter’s are teaming up again this September in their annual Cones for the Cure campaign. This two-week long campaign will take place September 4-16 at participating Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Lexington and Louisville Graeter’s locations. Their goal is to help spread the word about The Cure Starts Now and its mission to find a cure for all cancers by focusing on pediatric brain cancer.
During Cones for the Cure, guests that visit a Graeter’s store during the campaign period have the opportunity to donate a $1 or $5 “Cone for the Cure.” Graeter’s will also offer a $15 savings booklet for every donation of $5 or more to The Cure Starts Now.
Have you already tried Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream?
Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream was originally created to honor six-year-old Elena who lost her battle with cancer in 2007. A loyal customer created the ice cream to benefit The Cure Starts Now Foundation which was founded by Elena’s family. This flavor was offered for a limited time during the summer of 2008 and was so popular it sold out in just two weeks! Now, the flavor is a permanent item on the menu and a portion of its sales continue to benefit The Cure Starts Now.
Want to try Elena’s Blueberry Pie?
You can. For FREE. The campaign kicks off this Wednesday, September 4th.
All local Graeter’s will be giving away free scoops of Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream from 3:00 – 8:00 PM on Wednesday, 9/4.
One day of free ice cream isn’t enough? Ok. There are actually TWO free ice cream days! The second date and time will be announced on my Facebook page as the time gets closer. Still not enough? You also want a giveaway? Alright, alright. Check back here on the blog on September 9th for a chance to win a special giveaway for one of my readers. I hear a Graeter’s gift card is up for grabs. More details to come!!
So get some free ice cream, donate a “Cone for the Cure” and be a hero…
