This never gets old!

This truly never gets old!  Connecting with local schools, engaging with kids and having a LOT of fun along the way to help raise funds for school needs.


Alix-MAC School is on the receiving end of funds from our most recent ice cream sandwich at our Lacombe location, the “Black Forest”.  It included two chocolate covered house-baked shortbread cookies, dark cherry ice cream, whipped cream, cherry coulis, and chocolate shavings.  $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold is going towards school technology!

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, 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.


Our team was thrilled to work alongside students at the school in December for an on-site ice cream sandwich sale!  Students held each other to task and their work ethic coupled with their positive attitude helped us serve up more than 100 ice cream treats, raising some additional funds for the school.  A BIG thank-you to school staff and families who supported those efforts!


Today, (March 9th) we were thrilled to hand over a cheque to Alix-MAC School for $675 which included $444 raised from the on-site sale (we’re happy to kick back FULL proceeds from that pre-order fundraiser)!  School Principal Adrian Paolinelli says they are using the funds to help purchase a new sound system for their gym.



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 directly to Rimbey Elementary School, funds earmarked for playground equipment.
