Three Henderson Ben & Jerry’s locations will serve free ice cream cones to benefit local children’s charities.

Ben & Jerry’s, the company that broke the mold for businesses showing you could make a profit while giving back to the community, will commemorate its 32nd Annual “Free Cone Day” at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops inside the Galleria at Sunset, the District at Green Valley Ranch and, for the first time, adding the Sunset Station Hotel & Casino location in Henderson, with celebrity scoopers to benefit Lied Discovery Children’s Museum, the Nevada Community Learning Centers (formerly Classroom on Wheels) and St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. All small cones are FREE with no purchase necessary, but patrons are invited to make a donation to the respective local charity.

Local celebrities will roll up their sleeves and dig in at all three Scoop Shops and work to help raise money by scooping ice cream throughout the day on Tuesday, March 23, 2010, from Noon to 8 p.m.  Celebrities are being confirmed and will be announced shortly. 

“Free Cone Day” was originally launched to thank the community for their loyalty to Ben & Jerry’s and to congratulate the staff on the company’s first anniversary.  It was such a huge success; it is now a tradition that is celebrated each year. “Free Cone Day” at Ben & Jerry’s will happen across the globe and all proceeds are donated to local charities. This year, Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops anticipate to give away more than two million free ice cream cones nationally.  While the full flavor line-up is up for grabs on “Free Cone Day” featuring “legend-dairy” palette pleasers like Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia and Chubby Hubby, Ben & Jerry’s will debut its newest offerings as part of the celebration:

Peanut Brittle – Peanut brittle ice cream with peanut brittle chunks and a caramel swirl.

Chocowlate Chip – Fair Trade Certified Vanilla ice cream with fudge cows.

Milk & Cookies- Fair Trade Certified Vanilla ice cream with a chocolate cookie swirl, chocolate chip & chocolate-chocolate chip cookie pieces.
