Graeter’s Ice Cream Annual Cones for the Cure Campaign Runs September 5th to September 15th
Graeter’s Ice Cream, a 150-year-old, family owned craft ice cream company, has partnered once again with The Cure Starts Now in support of finding not just a cure for one cancer, but the cure for all cancers. Graeter’s will host its annual Cones For The Cure campaign in efforts to raise money for The Cure Starts Now and pediatric cancer research. Graeter’s Ice Cream will once again offer one of its most iconic seasonal flavors, Elena’s Blueberry Pie – a special flavor that was created by a Cincinnati family in support of The Cure Starts Now – throughout September.
At the center of Graeter’s Cones For The Cure campaign is The Cure Starts Now and its mission to find the Homerun Cure for cancer by focusing on pediatric brain cancer. The campaign ultimately gives consumers a unique way to support this increasingly important cause.
During the Cones for the Cure Campaign, running from September 5th through September 15th, guests in the Graeter’s retail scoop shops will have the opportunity to make a donation directly to The Cure Starts Now. Graeter’s will also offer a coupon booklet with up to $25 in savings for every donation of $5 or more while supplies last.
“Every year we ring in the fall with our most anticipated and favorite fundraising initiative with The Cure Starts Now,” said Chip Graeter, 4th generation co-owner of Graeter’s. “We created this special ice cream flavor more than a decade ago and have been committed to the cause ever since. We’re eager to raise even more funds for such an important cause and continue to support The Cure Starts Now.”
“Graeter’s has been such an excellent partner and we feel so blessed that this Cincinnati-based family brand is helping to support a cause that started right here in Cincinnati,” shared Keith Desserich, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board at The Cure Starts Now. “Through Graeter’s efforts, we’ve raised more than $770,000 in new cancer research funding and have been able to fund clinical trials that some of this year’s heroes are taking part in. We are so thrilled to continue this partnership, and raise even more!”
