Beneficial Scoops

scooper-bowl.jpgThough I’m a proponent of moderation over an “all you can eat” mentality, it’s tough to knock enjoying frozen treats for a good cause. Running June 9 – 11 (12 – 8pm daily) at Boston City Hall Plaza, the Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl is in its 27th year of raising money to support cancer treatment and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Admission – which allows you to sample all the ice cream you are able - is $8 for adults, $4 for children ages 3-9, and free for kids under 3. Particularly cool: in addition to traditional ice cream and frozen yogurt, this year’s offerings include sorbet and gelato (oh how I love gelato), and Kosher ice cream will be available.
