Cold Stone Creamery celebration to benefit WVU Children’s Hospital

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Cold Stone Creamery will celebrate five years of serving ice cream to the people of West Virginia with a variety of fundraisers for West Virginia University Children’s Hospital throughout the month of January.

All month long, the Cold Stone Creamery stores in Clarksburg, Morgantown, Parkersburg and Wheeling will sell WVU Children’s Hospital balloons for $1. Customers who purchase a balloon will have the opportunity to buy one Signature Creation and get another for half price.

Those locations will also feature a new ice cream creation on their menus. “Miracle Mix” will include Sweet Cream Ice Cream, bits of brownies, fudge topping, marshmallows and rainbow sprinkles. It was designed by 10-year-old Danielle Bartlett of Richwood, who will represent West Virginia as the 2010 Children’s Miracle Network Champion Child. For every “Miracle Mix” sale, Cold Stone Creamery will donate $1 to WVU Children’s Hospital.

“We are so grateful for this partnership with Cold Stone Creamery. All kids love ice cream, so it’s especially nice that kids of all ages can help out other kids just by enjoying one of their favorite treats,” Cheryl Jones, director of WVU Children’s Hospital, said. “We look forward to working with Cold Stone Creamery on this venture and hope to continue working with them long into the future.”

WVU Children's Hospital provides maternal, infant and pediatric care for West Virginia and the surrounding region, giving care to high-risk mothers, premature infants and children with life-threatening conditions through adolescence to adulthood. It is the only Children’s Miracle Network hospital in the state.
