Ice Cream, Ice Cream… who wants Ice Cream?!
Today on Indy Style, Hanna Kelley, Health and Wellness Manager of the American Dairy Association Indiana, and Whitney Smith, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, tell us more about how you can have your ice cream… and eat it, too…. all for a GREAT cause!!
For 29 years the American Dairy Association of Indiana has been serving up ice cream to the great people of Indianapolis. On Friday, July 13 from 11am-2pm, volunteers and local celebrities will be serving up giant ice cream sundaes with all the toppings in front of Hilbert Circle Theatre on Monument Circle.
This year, we have a great lineup for our celebrity scoopers including Colts football player Jack Doyle, IMS Historian Donald Davidson, HGTV Good Bones star Karen Laine, radio personality Joe Staysniak and more! They have graciously donated their time to scoop up delicious treat for us all.
We also have other interactive activities including face painters, the Pacers Fan Van, live music, and a special guest all the way from Purdue University- live dairy cow Molly. As for the ice cream itself, the celebs will be dishing out Edy’s Slow Churned Light Ice Cream topped with a choice of Kroger’s chocolate, strawberry, and caramel syrups (sugar free options available.) Prairie Farms had kindly donated whipped cream and Kroger’s has given us maraschino cherries and sprinkles complete the treat to individual perfection.
Each year that we do this all of the proceeds from the sundaes goes straight to a non-profit.This year we have partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana, a nonprofit whose mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
