Scooper Bowl


On Tuesday through Thursday this week there was an ice cream fund raiser for the Jimmy Fund which supports cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The event was spoonsored (sic) by FedEx and took place on City Hall Plaza. It was billed as the nation's largest all-you-can eat ice cream festival. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate and we had cool and showery weather on those days.

Sometimes weather likes to make jokes..
I find all strange in your story: the sponsor Fed-Ex, the fact to eat ice creams against cancer, when everyone knows that such food is not good for this kind of illness. Such a thing could not happen here, at least organised that way.

It's to bad about the weather...but who let's a few rain drops stop them from free ice cream! I have always wanted to go down for that event. Perhaps I will next year.

Love the way the blue in this cools the picture down.

Street photography, you never know what you're going to get... makes it interesting when you sit down to view.

Did they have yogurt ice cream? Can't have regular :)

Looks downright cold. And we are having record heat. The Jimmy Fund has been around for years. A very worth cause!

I like to eat ice cream in any kind of weather myself, especially if it's for a good cause!

I can eat ice cream when it's cold and wet...no problemo. It is unfortunate, though, if the funds raised were less than hoped for...

Too bad about the cold weather but it wouldn't have stopped me. I tend to like ice cream in the cold weather.
