Hey Ice Cream Lovers- treat yourself to a free scoop of Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream and help fund cancer research. Elena’s Blueberry Pie, a rich vanilla ice cream with luscious blueberries and tasty bits of flaky pie crust, was created by a loyal Graeter’s customer to benefit The Cure Starts Now. The Cure Starts Now’s mission is to find a cure for all cancers by focusing on pediatric brain cancer.
During Cones for the Cure, guests who 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.
On Wednesday, September 4th from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. All local Graeter’s will be giving away free scoops of Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream.
The Cure Starts Now Foundation – a non-profit organization founded by the Desserich family of Cincinnati after losing their six-year-old daughter, Elena, to cancer in 2007. Its mission is to educate, aid and fund the research for a cure for pediatric brain cancer in the hopes of curing all cancers. This irresistible flavor combination was offered for a limited time in the summer of 2008 and was so popular that it sold out in just two weeks. Now, the flavor is back as a permanent item on the Graeter’s menu and a portion of its sales will continue to benefit The Cure Starts Now. Graeter’s is proud to partner with this wonderful organization and thrilled to offer customers a delicious way to support such a worthy cause. Blueberry Pie ice cream is now available by the scoop and by the pint in Graeter’s retail stores, as well as by the pint in select grocery stores, and through Graeter’s mail order and Website.
