Cones for the Cure: The Cure Starts Now


While this post was a silly reminder of a good cause and a wonderfully fun partnership with Graeter’s Ice Cream… Cones for the Cure needs your help. Children need your help.

Each year, they hold this fundraiser to help raise money to fund research to find a cure to pediatric brain cancer. With your help, they could hit a home run and find a cure for all cancers. If you think about it, you would spend $3 or more on ice cream at Graeter’s normally.

If you took that money saved with your free scoop and donated it… you would be helping children live long, cancer-free lives. Or, better a scoop of Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream during the two week period, and donate the money you normally spend on your coffee in the morning!

Remember, a $5 donation gets you a $20 coupon book!

Be a hero. Please visit your local Graeter’s and help Cones for the Cure hit a home run for cancer! You could save a child’s life.

If you are unable to visit a participating Graeter’s, please visit the Cones for the Cure website for information on how to make a donation.
