Whether on a cone or in a bowl, ice cream ordered at any Cold Stone Creamery on Sept. 30 will contribute setting a world record for the world’s largest ice cream social.
Issaquah’s Cold Stone will join 1,300 stores nationwide, plus others in Guam and Puerto Rico, to help set a record and benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Get a free ice cream from 5-8 p.m. Sept. 30, at the local Cold Stone, 6100 East Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E.
Each participant will receive a free three-ounce ice cream, known as Kate’s Creation, a caramel apple ice cream mixed with graham cracker piecrust, chocolate shavings and apple pie filling — and named for the 11-year-old Tampa, Fla., girl who spearheaded the event.
In return, guests are encouraged to donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Issaquah actress Maureen Francisco, who starred in Fox Reality show “Solitary 3.0” and the Issaquah-produced movie “Eyes in the Dark,” will greet Issaquah’s ice cream lovers as a Make-A-Wish Ambassador.
“I became part of the organization because I believe in the cause,” Francisco said. “You feel good knowing that your time, energy, and resources are making a child’s wish come true. Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children who have life-threatening medical conditions.”
