Children's Hospital Visit

Children's National Hospital Ice Cream Visit
This summer has been a special one at Scoops because we have had the pleasure of partnering with HOT99.5 to bring Free Ice Cream Fridays to the DMV! Every Friday we have stopped at a different location to spread joy throughout the greater DC area.
On Friday August 14th, we were invited into the Children’s National Medical Center at 111 Michigan Avenue NW in Washington DC! We jumped at the opportunity to hand out free novelties to the hospital employees, patients and their visiting families.
When we arrived at the hospital, a couple of volunteers greeted us and explained that the nurses determined which patients are eligible to enjoy the ice cream.
Free Ice Cream at Children's Hospital
We separated into teams to “divide and conquer” in hopes of treating as many people as possible in the allotted time frame. Each team was given a list of approved patients and corresponding room numbers. The patients got to choose which ice cream they wanted to enjoy in bed. We provided the options of Chocolate Eclairs, Strawberry Shortcakes, Vanilla Sandwiches and Lick-A-Color Popsicles.
Since there were a number of patients napping or away from their rooms, we made sure to leave plenty of ice cream behind in the hospital freezer.
Ice Cream NursesThe volunteers planned to return to the rooms we didn’t serve to ensure that everyone who wanted ice cream received it.
We had a huge turnout! The hospital employees, volunteers and families were extremely gracious of the tasty donations and thanked us for sweetening up their Friday.
This particular Free Ice Cream Friday event was particularly rewarding because we were able to give back to the community in such a wonderful way. A big thanks to our friends at HOT99.5 for helping to coordinate such an exceptional event.


Phish Merriweather 2014
Phish was one of our favorite concerts that we attended at Merriweather Post Pavilion last summer. We were so excited when we learned that they will be performing not one, but TWO nights at MPP this summer season! The band will be live in Columbia, MD on August 15 & 16. Tickets are still available at: http://www.merriweathermusic.com/event/814569-phish-columbia/

The Ice Cream Race [Interview with Race Founder]

Northern Virginia families should mark their calendars for The Ice Cream Race on June 27, 2015!
Ice Cream Race CostumesThe Ice Cream Race is the sweetest family 5k event in the DC/MD/VA region. This year’s event will occur at Bull Run Park in Centreville, VA. We recently had a chance to meet with the race’s founder and find out more information about what to expect at this summer’s exciting event!
Max Bawarski has been organizing fun family 5k races for the past 4 years. He is the founder of The Ice Cream Race as well as the Blood and Guts Run. Running has been a passion of his since he was in grade school.
SCOOPS2U: “Do any of the race proceeds go to charity?”
Max: “A portion of the profits of The Ice Cream Race will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphona in 2006, so I feel that it is my duty to donate money every year to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.”
SCOOPS2U: “What will be different in this year’s race compared to last year?”
Ice Cream Race Foam FunMax: “This year’s race will be a little different because we are adding a lot of new obstacles. Some of the new obstacles include: a cargo net, inflatable obstacle course, inflatable Slip N Slide and more! I am personally most excited about our new inflatable obstacles.”
SCOOPS2U: “What can race participants win?”
Max: “All race participants will receive a free tee shirt and ice cream. Participants can also win prizes at the after party for wildest costume. We will reward a cash prize to the fastest male and female of the first race. The first race of the day is at 8 am and this is our only competitive wave.”
SCOOPS2U: “Will there be other attractions at the race?”
SCOOPS2U at Ice Cream RaceMax: “We will have a variety of vendors, food trucks, a beer garden, two DJ’s, an interactive photo booth, and much more!”
