Roswell Square Park will once again host annual Miss Mary’s Ice Cream Crankin’ on Aug. 27, the signature fundraising event for The Drake House. This year’s event is presented by BurgerFi who has teamed up with the agency to offer a challenge fundraising match on the day of the event. Owners Ron and Terrie Altman comment, “We applaud your work and are humbled to have a part to help you,” and “generate maximum awareness and followers to The Drake House.”
The 13th annual Ice Cream Crankin’ brings together local businesses, civic, faith and friend groups for an old fashioned ice cream social, offering over 100 flavors of home-made ice-cream to ticket holders. Groups compete for awards for best vanilla, chocolate, fruit, and other flavor categories by local celebrity and sponsor judges. New this year is a Best Kids flavor, open to kids under the age of 18 who are ready to take their culinary crankin’ skills to the next level. Kids are invited to compete in the ice cream eating and stacking contest. There are many other children’s actives including face painting and a bouncy house.
“Each year we are truly amazed at the out pouring of community support for this event,” says Holly York, Director of Development. “People look forward to our Ice Cream Crankin’ as the culmination of the summer’s activities.” Each year, attendance increases, with this year’s attendance expected to exceed 3,500. We are thrilled to have so many sponsors enjoy partnering with us.” In addition to our presenting sponsor, the event’s Triple Scoop Sponsors are: Coldwell Banker CARES, Publix, AT&T, WellStar – North Fulton, Philip Hasty & Laura Smith, Roswell UMC, Roswell First Baptist, and DataScan. Miss Mary’s Ice Cream Crankin’ hopes to raise $50,000 for The Drake House.
