Cones For the Cure

I'm so excited to share a wonderful cause that's super easy to be a part of<3 Today kicks off "Cones for the Cure".

A little bit of background on their cause:

Started in 2007, in tribute to a 6-year-old girl named Elena Desserich, The Cure Starts Now Foundation has revolutionized cancer research worldwide with its focus on a “homerun cure” for all cancers. In just 7 years, The Cure Starts Now has raised over $2 million for pediatric brain cancer research. With 27 chapters in 3 countries, The Cure Starts Now is making a difference in the fight against cancer. The Cure Starts Now has also been recognized by The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, People Magazine, Inside Edition and media worldwide for the inspiration it offers to all that fight cancer.
Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream was named after Elena as part of a wish donated by Graeter’s to The Cure Starts Now’s annual gala. The Groteke family won the wish and invented the flavor in 2008. Elena’s heart painting is the inspiration for the pint design. A portion of the proceeds from every scoop benefits The Cure Starts Now.

During Cones for the Cure, guests that visit a Graeter’s store during the campaign period have the opportunity to donate a $1 or $5 “Cone for the Cure.” Graeter’s will also offer a $15 savings booklet for every donation of $5 or more to The Cure Starts Now. In 2013, over $52,000 was raised in just two weeks! Amazing! To learn more about Cones for the Cure, please visit the website at

So starting today, go ahead & “like” Cones for the Cure on Facebook ( so you can be the first to get the “inside scoop” about free ice cream days, giveaways and more!

I can't wait to hit take the boys to Graeter's and grab some Ice Cream to help out<3
