Graeter’s Ice Cream has announced that their annual Cones for a Cure campaign is returning on September 4, 2013 and running through September 16th. Participating Graeter’s locations in Cincinnati, Columbus, Lexington and Louisville will again be serving Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream with proceeds from sales of that ice cream going to cancer research through The Cure Starts Now. The flavor was created in honor of six year old Elena Desserich who lost her fight with cancer in 2007 and was the inspiration behind The Cure Starts Now.
During Cones for the Cure, guests that visit a Graeter’s store during the campaign period have the opportunity to donate a $1 or $5 “Cone for the Cure.” Graeter’s will also offer a $15 savings booklet for every donation of $5 or more to The Cure Starts Now.
In addition, Graeter’s will be giving away free scoops of Elena’s Blueberry Pie to customers two separate times during the month of September. The two free ice creams will be “randomly announced” on various media outlets and social media.
