Do you love ice cream? Come visit Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop at Mohegan Sun on Tuesday, April 8th from Noon-8 p.m. for their 35th annual Free Cone Day.
For the second year in a row Ben & Jerry’s has chosen United Way of Southeastern Connecticut to receive proceeds from the event. How can a free cone day raise money? Upgrade your cone to a waffle cone for $1.00 and that dollar will be contributed to United Way. Last year $2,000 was raised from cone sales during the event, and Mohegan Sun matched that contribution making the total $4,000.00raised for United Way’s work of advancing the common good in Southeastern Connecticut!
We would love to see you and all of your friends and family on April 8th, come enjoy a sweet treat for a good cause! Be sure to say hello to United Way staff and volunteers who will be there as “celebrity scoopers” joining in on the fun and excitement on Free Cone Day!
Free Cone Day is a way for Ben & Jerry’s to celebrate and say thanks for another year of support, and they’ve kept it up every year since their first anniversary in 1979, spreading the peace, love & ice cream around the globe.
Many thanks to Ben & Jerry’s for choosing to support United Way!
