Over $62,000 raised in 2017!

Posted December 10, 2017

At the beginning of November, we handed out our last ice cream of the 2017 season!

With over $62,000 in donations raised, 771 requests received, and exactly 300 events attended, it has been one of the busiest and best seasons yet! It’s pretty incredible to think that since 2012, when we started the Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause Truck, that we have raised $286,923 for charity by handing out FREE ICE CREAM!!!

I would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all of the lovely smiling faces that have stopped by the ice cream truck this year. I feel so lucky to have such a great job where I get to meet and work with so many kind, caring, and wonderful people every day. Working with so many fantastic charities that are so devoted to helping others always warms my heart too.

I would also like to send out a thank you to my fellow ambassadors Heather Van Dyne, Melanie Bronson Kollman, Alekzander Sayers, Devon Biggie, and Meredith Darling. You all have done such a great job, and I feel very fortunate to have you on my team.

You can also send in your request for the 2018 Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause Season. Your request will be kept on file and we will email you approximately 6 weeks prior to your event, confirming whether or not we can accommodate your event.
