Celebrity Scooper Night for Autism Awareness

The evening will be a delightful celebration of community and giving back. Sweet Aloha Ice Cream will be staffed by special celebrity scoopers – inspiring volunteers who have made a positive impact on the lives of adults with autism. A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated directly to the Dan Marino Foundation, a local organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families living with autism across South Florida.

"We are thrilled to partner with the Dan Marino Foundation for such a worthy cause," says Jimmy Anderson, brand owner for Sweet Aloha Ice Cream. "Autism Awareness Month is a time to celebrate inclusivity and the incredible contributions people with autism make to our community. This event allows us to do just that, while also offering our guests a fun and delicious experience."

Sweet Aloha Scoops Up Aloha and Shave Ice Fun

Sweet Aloha Ice Cream isn't just about serving up delicious treats; they're also passionate about sharing the spirit of aloha. In addition to their premium quality homemade ice cream, guests at the Celebrity Scooper Night can enjoy authentic Hawaiian shave ice. Unlike snow cones made with crushed ice, Hawaiian shave ice is a textural sensation. A large block of ice is expertly shaved into a light, fluffy snow with a fine, delicate texture that melts in your mouth, leaving a refreshingly cool sensation.

Join the Sweet Celebration

Mark your calendars for Monday, April 29th and head to Sweet Aloha Ice Cream for a night of fun, community, and supporting a great cause. Enjoy scoops of happiness served by special celebrity volunteers, all while helping raise critical funds for the Dan Marino Foundation.
