Cold Stone Creamery to Celebrate Anniversary

Proceeds benefit WVU Children’s Hospital

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University Children’s Hospital will help Cold Stone Creamery celebrate its first anniversary from 11 a.m. to midnight on Saturday, Jan. 14, at the Cold Stone location on High Street. The event will feature celebrity mix masters, musical entertainment, karaoke and fun for the entire family. Cold Stone Creamery will donate 40 percent of the day’s proceeds to WVU Children’s Hospital. The celebration is open to the public and the first 50 children age 12 and under to attend the event will receive free Cold Stone Kid’s Creations for one year. 

“This is a wonderful opportunity to commemorate Cold Stone’s first anniversary as well as the relationship between WVU Children’s Hospital and Cold Stone Creamery,” said Peggy Myers-Smith, the manager of development programs at WVUCH. “Cold Stone came on board with us a few months ago and have been a tremendous support to us ever since.”

Cold Stone Creamery will kick off the anniversary celebration with a private ice cream party for the patients at WVU Children’s Hospital this Friday. “The ice cream party will cement the connection between WVU Children’s Hospital and Cold Stone Creamery,” said Myers-Smith. “It’s such a wonderful thing to do for the children.”

Annually, more than 7,500 children are admitted to WVU Children’s Hospital. These children come from every West Virginia county as well as the surrounding states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky, and Virginia. The cardiac, oncology and neurosciences programs at WVU Children’s Hospital are among the best in the country and are nationally recognize for excellence.
