Now that we’re at the height of summer, I must admit that I am craving ice cream every single day! I am sure I am not the only one…
Wouldn’t it be great if you could indulge your cravings and raise funds at the same time?
Did you know that Ben & Jerry’s (the makers of such delectable ice cream flavors as Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia and Chocolate Fudge Brownie… mmmmm!) also specializes in fundraising? It’s true! They host benefit nights!
How Does it Work?
You promote the evening to your friends, family and acquaintances and coordinate volunteers to scoop ice cream. A few hundred ice cream cones later, your group gets to keep 10% – 25% of the profits (check with your local Ben & Jerry’s for profit information)! Check out some pictures from a successful Ben & Jerry’s fundraiser for the American School for The Deaf. Can you think of a happier summer fundraiser? It makes me want to organize one right now!
Of course, each Ben & Jerry’s location operates a little differently, so it’s best to contact the shop closest to you to see if this crave-worthy fundraising service is available in your area.
For those of you that don’t have a Ben & Jerry’s in your community, check out a few other ice cream fundraising ideas from Sandra Sims.
Happy Ice Cream Fundraising! (Yummy..yummy)
