To help raise money for pediatric brain cancer, Graeter’s Ice Cream has teamed up with The Cure Starts Now. The partnership helps celebrate the annual Cones for the Cure campaign that takes place from September 7-17 in participating locations from Cleveland to Cincinnati.
The goal of the partnership is to offer free scoops of Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream to customers up to two times during the promotion when donations of $1, $4 or more are made to “Cone for the Cure.” Customers who donate $5 or more to The Cure Starts Now will receive a $20 saving booklet for future Graeter’s ice cream.
In 2016, Graeter’s raised over $136,000 for The Cure Starts Now during the first two weeks of Cones for the Cure. What can be raised in 2017? The possibilities are endless. Share the word to help raise more than ever.
What is The Cure Starts Now Foundation and how did it get started?
In 2007, in tribute to Elena Desserich, 6 years old, a worldwide cancer research revolutionized to focus on pediatric cancer patients with all forms of brain cancer. The Cure Starts Now, since the formation, the cause has raised over $7.3 million for the research efforts for this fearful diagnosis and cure in the fight of cancer. The cause has been featured worldwide n publications such as People Magazine and media, The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Inside Edition and other media outlets.
The Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream was named after Elena as part of a wish donated by Graeter’s to The Cure Starts Now’s annual Once in a Lifetime Gala & Auction. The Groteke family won the wish and invented the flavor in 2008. Elena’s heart painting is the inspiration for the pint design. A portion of the proceeds from every scoop benefits The Cure Starts Now.
Help spread the word to help the children by sharing, reposting and telling friends and family.
