Free Ice Cream Today at Cold Stone Creamery's Ice Cream Social

Cold Stone Creamery is handing out free three-ounce "Sprinkled With Wishes" ice creams today to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation as part of its nationwide Ice Cream Social event.

From 5 to 8 p.m., claim your free ice cream sundae, made with sweet cream

ice cream, brownie, fudge and rainbow sprinkles. Then dig deep into

your pocket and make a donation to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.



All

proceeds raised in South Florida stores go directly to the South

Florida chapter of this organization, which helps children with

life-threatening illnesses forget about their sickness for a while by

providing them with wish adventures like shopping sprees, celebrity meet-and-greets, and trips to Disney World.

Make-a-Wish

receives no federal or state funding and raises money to grant wishes

through corporate sponsorships, special events, foundation grants, and

individual contributions. The Southern Florida chapter grants a wish

every 16 hours, every day of the year, at an average cost of $5,000.

The ice cream social offer is available at all Cold Stone Creamery locations today from 5 to 8 p.m.
