We are so excited to announce that our Ice Cream fundraiser was a massive success. WE RAISED A GRAND TOTAL OF 445 DOLLARS FOR COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS! While the week started off rough with a broken blender and melted ice cream, our amazing volunteers got creative and quickly switched our milkshake sale to a Sundae sale. We are so grateful to everyone who spent their lunch helping us sell ice cream and to everyone who bought some! While our first fundraiser was a massive success, we still have ways to go for our 10,000-dollar goal and cannot wait for our next event!
