Supporting Ponoka Elementary with Mini Egg Ice Cream Sandwiches!

We can confirm, people like mini eggs! And more importantly, supporting local schools!

Ponoka Elementary School is on the receiving end of funds from our most recent ice cream sandwich, the “Mini Egg”. Our School Ice Cream Sandwich Program sees our culinary teams at both of our restaurant locations dream up an ice cream sandwich with some punch every 3 months, and we select a local school to benefit from ice cream sandwich sales, kicking back $1 of every sandwich we sell in house to a program or project of the school’s choice.

From March to May the “Mini Egg” was served up at our Lacombe location. It included chocolate egg ice cream, salted chocolate and caramel cookies, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and crushed mini eggs! Ponoka Elementary School has dedicated funds raised to upgrade and refresh their recess equipment! School Principal Nathan McEntee says soccer balls, frisbees, footballs, basketballs and skipping ropes are on their purchase wish list.

Our team was thrilled to work alongside students at the school in April for an on-site ice cream sandwich sale! These elementary kids busted hump to help us serve up more than 375 ice cream treats, raising some additional funds for the school. A BIG thank-you to school staff and families who supported those efforts! Today, (June 6th) we were thrilled to hand over a cheque to Ponoka Elementary School for $2222 which included $1504 raised from the on-site sale (we’re happy to kick back FULL proceeds from that pre-order fundraiser)!

Our next Ice Cream Sandwich at our Lacombe location is the “Lavender Lemonade Ice Cream Sandwich” it includes lemonade ice cream with a lavender ripple sandwiched between two shortbread cookies, fresh whipped cream, and a lavender caramel drizzle on top! $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold will go to St. Gregory The Great Catholic School in Blackfalds to offer opportunities for students to attend summer programming and extra curricular activities.
