BOSTON – The 35th annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl, presented by Valvoline Instant Oil Change, will take place at Boston’s City Hall Plaza on June 6, 7 and 8 from noon to 8:00 p.m.
Dozens of flavors will be served by top ice cream and frozen yogurt companies in the nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival. All proceeds support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
“We’re thrilled to partner with The Jimmy Fund to sponsor The Scooper Bowl for the 2nd consecutive year,” said Don Smith, CEO of Valvoline Instant Oil Change franchisee. “What better way to celebrate the summer than by bringing a family-fun event to Boston that also raises money for a great cause?”
