Thanks Chicagolandia for reminding me that I haven’t yet posted about Baskin Robbins’ upcoming 31 Cent Scoop Night!
This year 31 Cent Scoop Night is Wednesday, April 29, 2009 from 5 – 10 p.m.
In case you don’t know, 31 Cent Scoop Night is actually a fundraiser that Baskin Robbins has been holding the past couple of years, benefiting the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) and their National Junior Firefighter Program. Baskin Robbins will donate $100,000 and the company hopes that by decreasing the cost of ice cream that you will consider making a donation, too. (Although that is not a requirement.)
I have participated the past two years and there are always firefighters hanging out at the Baskin Robbins taking pictures with customers and whatnot. It’s a fun event and cheap scoops of ice cream make it even more fun! (According to the sign that is hanging at my local Baskin Robbins, each person is entitled to purchase THREE scoops of ice cream at the discounted price. Check with your store as this may not be the case everywhere.)
Lots of ice cream specials on this super dreary day in Chicago!
