WTAE-TV’s Celebrity Scoopers with Life’sWork’s Tikisha Johnson and Ashley Jackson.
On Tuesday, April 21, the Squirrel Hill Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShop gave away 3,995 scoops of ice cream…that’s more than 700 pounds! That’s because it was FREE CONE DAY across the globe — the ultimate customer appreciation event for Ben & Jerry’s loyal fans.
Our thanks WTAE-TV’s News Crew Amber Nicotra, Scott Stiller and Andrew Stockey for serving as our Celebrity Scoopers. Also on hand to help were the Pirate Parrot and Steely McBeam. Incredible balloon art was donated by Judy Carodi, The Balloon Artiste Extraordinaire.
I certainly wish I had been able to go! And not just for the free ice cream! Check out the great pictures!
What’s better than ice cream? Free ice cream!
