Lavender lemonade in the form of an ice cream sandwich?! Oh HECKYEAH! It was the perfect way to end the school year and to entice families to continue to support a local school all summer long.
St. Gregory the Great Catholic School in Blackfalds is on the receiving end of funds from our most recent ice cream sandwich. 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 June to August the “Lavender Lemonade” ice cream sandwich was served up at our Lacombe location. It included lemonade ice cream with a lavender ripple sandwiched between two shortbread cookies, fresh whipped cream, and a lavender caramel drizzle on top! St. Gregory has dedicated funds raised to offer opportunities for students to attend summer programming and extra curricular activities.
Our team was THRILLED to work alongside students at the school in June for an on-site ice cream sandwich sale! A group of middle school students held each other to task and their work ethic coupled with their positive attitude helped us serve up more than 500 ice cream treats, raising some additional funds for the school. A BIG thank-you to school staff and families who supported those efforts! Today, (September 13th) we were excited to hand over a cheque to St. Gregory the Great for $2353 which included $2056 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 “Rainbow Monster” ice cream sandwich” it includes two fresh baked monster cookies with blue monster cookie dough ice cream, rainbow sprinkles, and candy glitter! $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold will go to Lacombe Christian School to update their ageing west campus playground.
