How can you turn down dessert for a good cause?!
Through our School Ice Cream Sandwich Program, you indulge in an ice cream sandwich all while helping to raise funds for a local school. Every three months both of our restaurant locations select a local school to benefit from ice cream sandwich sales, kicking back $1 of every sandwich sold to a program or project of the school’s choice.
Our Lacombe location recently served up the “Apple pie à la mode”! Dutch apple pie ice cream sandwiched between two white chocolate cranberry shortbread cookies topped with whipped cream, spiced caramel drizzle and caramel apple slices. $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold went directly towards Bentley School and their “Families in Need” fund.
School Principal Lane Moore says the fund is used year-round to support the Town of Bentley Blessing Pantry (local food bank), families in their school community who are in need of grocery or fuel gift cards, to provide hot lunches, and school supplies throughout the year to students in need and at other times to support families who experience a tragedy such as the loss of parent or home.
Our team was thrilled to deliver ice cream sandwiches to the school in January as part of a pre-order sale. And a BIG thank-you to school staff and families who made the trip out to indulge in support of the school! Today we were thrilled to hand over a cheque to Bentley School for $883 which included $632 raised from the school lunch order (we’re happy to kick back FULL lunch order proceeds)!
Our current Ice Cream Sandwich at our Lacombe location is the “Mini Egg” ice cream sandwich! It includes chocolate egg ice cream, salted chocolate and caramel cookies, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and crushed mini eggs! $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold will go to Ponoka Elementary School with funds dedicated to upgrade and refresh their recess equipment!
