Sheepshead Bay

A big scoop of thanks to Carvel Ice Cream for donating $25,000 to the American Red Cross. The company selected the Sheepshead Bay store, which sustained heavy damages due to Hurricane Sandy, to make the donation and celebrate the opening of its 2013 ice cream season — with a free cone.

“Free cone day at Carvel Ice Cream means summer is near,” Lori Peterson, vice president of marketing at Carvel, told Standing O. “This year, it is both an opportunity to indulge with a cone of America’s freshest ice cream, while giving back to the community through the American Red Cross’ Disaster Relief Fund.”

Carvel has partnered with the Red Cross in the past and is currently offering a $2 coupon book, which will support the charity.

“We are honored to give back to the community and Americans everywhere with a free cone,” said Scott Colwell, president of Carvel Ice Cream.

Standing O would prefer a brown bonnet, but a swirl of chocolate with lots of sprinkles is just as sweet.
