Jamaica Plain, MA (PressExposure) April 06, 2009 -- On Red Sox Home Opening Day, Monday, April 6th, J.P. Licks will offer âIce Cream for a Buckâ at all their stores to say âthanksâ to both fans of their homemade ice cream and fans of the Sox.
Stop by any of J.P. Licksâ eight homemade ice cream and coffee cafÃ©s in and around the Boston area between noon and 9 p.m. on Red Sox Home Opening Day and get any ice cream or frozen yogurt for only $1 per scoop. At the same time, make a donation to help the Boys & Girls Clubs in the Boston area.
From April 6th to April 12th, all J.P. Licks stores will be collecting new or gently used baseball (and other sporting) equipment for the non-profit Boys & Girls Club of Boston. Donât have baseball equipment? Donate new/gently used basketballs, soccer balls, dodge balls, Wiffleâ¢ balls and bats, softballs, softball helmets, soccer shin guards, street hockey equipment, tennis rackets, tennis balls, jump ropes, double dutch ropes and/or hula hoops.
âThe Boys & Girls Club of Boston is a terrific organization and weâre asking folks to support them by donating much needed sports equipment to any one of our stores during the week of April 6th,â noted Vince Petryk, owner of the eight J.P. Licks stores.
He continued, âWeâre looking forward to another great Opening Day. Last year, the Sox won and we scooped over 26,000 servings of ice cream to say Thank You to our customers. Baseball and ice cream simply go together. Itâs a great way to start the season.â
Gear up for the season and try one of these special flavors in the spirit of the Sox: Rice DICE Kream, Green Monster Tea, One Sweet World Series, Peanut Beckett and Jelly, Cherry Ortiz, Very Berry Ellsbury Lowfat Yogurt and Pedroiaâs Passion Fruit Sorbet.
Kids of all ages will enjoy J.P. Licksâ tribute âSlider Sundaeâ, made with a choice of ice cream and topping and served in a Red Sox logo cap. Or bring home a Baseball pie made with vanilla ice cream in a graham cracker shell with caramel complete with red stitching!
