“Sometimes the best way to cure cancer is with a little cream and sugar.” Keith Desserich, Chairman of The Cure Starts Now
Hey my local readers! Do you love Graeter’s?? (I mean, who doesn’t?? Even Oprah has it shipped to her!)
It’s the best ice cream around and a beloved local favorite. Graeter’s and The Cure Starts Now have teamed up again for their annual Cones for the Cure campaign!
This two-week long campaign will take place September 3-15 at participating Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Lexington and Louisville Graeter’s locations 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.
The promotion is kicking off on Friday, September 5th 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.
I Repeat…. Friday, September 5th from 3-8 ALL Graeter’s will be serving FREE scoops of Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream to all customers! 🙂
The Cones for the Cure campaign runs from September 3-15 and there will be two more upcoming dates where you can get a FREE scoop of Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream.
Be sure to follow Cones for the Cure on facebook to see when those dates will be announced.
Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream was originally created by a loyal Graeter’s customer to benefit 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. 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 Graeter’s menu and a portion of its sales will continue to benefit The Cure Starts Now.
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.
New for 2014! We are excited to have Walgreens on board for Cones for the Cure! From September 18-
September 30 Walgreens shoppers will have the ability to donate $1 or $5 to Cones for the Cure upon
checkout. This will be for Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus area stores ONLY.
