Big Dipper in Hackensack holds fundraiser for Faith in Action
Visitors to the Big Dipper in Hackensack on July 19 were greeted with “Happy National Ice Cream Day! Would you like to buy an ice cream sandwich?”
Staff at the Big Dipper handmade huge ice cream sandwiches with monster cookies and the customer's choice of 39 ice cream flavors and dedicated the proceeds to Faith in Action for Cass County. Customers could enjoy the ice cream at the Big Dipper’s outdoor seating or call ahead for ice cream sandwich orders, some people taking home a dozen for their freezers.
“We can’t thank everyone enough for participating in our fundraiser for Faith in Action in Hackensack,” Big Dipper owner Jeannette Dudley said in a news release. “We set our goal at $500 and we made $1,200 selling monster cookie ice cream sandwiches (July 19-22). Faith in Action for Cass County is a great local nonprofit organization. We appreciate your support.”
