' '" i'" POST-GAZETTE, MAY 31,2013 Page9 j ngela Ice cream makes everything fun; The 2013 Scooper Bowl will be June 4th--6~h at Boston City Hall Plaza. (Photo Boston It's Time to Scream for Ice Cream .... 2013 Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl is Tuesday, June 4t~ - Thursday, June 6th from Noon - 8:00 pm every day at City Hall Plaza, Boston. The 31~t annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl pre- sented by FedEx, is the nation's largest all-you-can- eat ice cream festival. The event serves up ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet from nine of the nation's leading ice cream companies. Baskin-Robbins, Ben & Jerry's, Blue Bunny, Breyer's, Byrne Dairy, Edy's, Friendly's, HP Hood and SoCo Creamery will be in attendance and the list of flavors to make an appearance is too long to list, so you will just have to pop in and see. Kids can even win their way in with The Jimmy Fund Scooper Schools Program. It provides students in New England the opportunity to earn free admission to the Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl by planning and participating in fundraising projects for the Jimmy Fund throughout the year. By doing so, these students are able to tap into their creativity, build self- confidence and most impor- tantly, learn the importance of philanthropy by fundrais- ing at their school. Teaching students the critical importance of philan- thropy and volunteerism in building a better society is a fundamental goal of the Jimmy Fund Scooper Schools courtesy of about a thousand Boston Common visitors who, for $1, slurped up as much as their hearts desired. Ambitious representatives from Brigham's, Baileys, Emack & Bolio, and Hendries had answered the call of New England Dairy Festival orga- nizers who wanted to serve ice cream to the thousands of tourists and school chil- dren who had traveled to Bos- ton for the annual dairy cel- ebration. Known simply as the "ice cream fundraising event" to those who scooped and most likely as "an oasis" to those who ate, this hot day was the sticky start to the largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival in the world. Celebrating its 31~t year in 2013, the Scooper Bowl is now a 3-day event that dishes out 20 tons of the summer's finest ice cream to nearly 60,000 ice cream lovers from across lhe na- tion. Made possible by the generous contributions of the industry's largest ice cream companies, the Scooper Bowl has raised more than $3.5 million in the past 30 years for cancer research and patient care at the world- renowned Dana-Farber Can- cer Institute. Since its in- ception in 1983 the Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl has raised more than $3 million for cancer research and care. How can you miss the 2013 Scooper Bowl? An event with such a great cause and tasty artists are welcome to in- clude an artist from their network to participate in the show.
