Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year - 2016
We wanted to thank everyone that somehow was involved in on of our celebrations. I hope you had as much fun as we did!
We are happy to report that with your help we were able to donate and raise quite a bit of supplies and funds for: Share the Blessings, "O", the Happy Little Boys, Cards for Kids by Emersyn, Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County, Special Olympics of Charlotte County and Friends of Gilchrist Park Playground.
Once again we want to thank everyone that has made our little shop the success it is today, including specially our employees!
When Ron and I were thinking on how we could celebrate this year, one word kept coming back to our minds, SHARE. Well, so it was clear that we had the theme for our celebrations.
As our past customers know, we always use our anniversary or other ocasions as a way to help raise funds or items for some very deserving people or organizations.
Below is a list of Who They Are and What They Do!
If you always had a DREAMY recipe for that PERFECT ice cream flavor, but you really wanted that it was made in an ice cream shop, this fundraiser is the answer to your dreams! You provide us with your recipe, we will make the ice cream at your shop. After we all test and approve the flavor we will make one gallon for you to share your masterpiece with your friends and family and one 2-1/2 galloons to be served at the Ice Cream Social on Sunday, June 26 - Noon to 2 pm - see details below Boogie Night.
* Write a check to Team Punta Gorda with Friends of Gilchrist Park Playground on memo.
100% of proceeds will be donated
PS. No secrets of your recipe will EVER be revealed!

Come boogie with us to the sounds of disco music. Channel your inner Travolta while wearing your "Disco Fashion".
We will clear all of the furniture inside the shop to make room for the dance floor! We provide the disco ball, you provide the glitter!
DRESS UP or show off your DANCE MOVES and get a FREE ice cream!!!
Here are some tips on how to dress up for a Disco Party!
Disco fashion had a style all its own. Everyday clothing in the 1970s and 1980s would not work for a festive night at a disco club. Instead, men and women both wore gaudy materials and daring styles. If attending a disco party, look the part by throwing on flared clothing that reflects light well.
