The Charity Guys have talked about serving desserts at Our Place for months now, and last Thursday, true to Charity Guy spirit, we made it happen! Market on Millstream was generous enough to sell us the supplies we needed at cost. We came prepared with buckets of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream as well as all the fixings including sprinkles, smarties, graham crumbs and whipped cream! As we set up the station a line was already beginning to form! The friendly folks at Our Place encouraged us with comments and words of excitement for the forthcoming treats. The staff was extremely helpful at making sure we had all the necessary serving tools and utensils. At 3:30 we were ready to rock! We soon got the hang of it and were serving up made-to-order sundaes in no time with a Charity Guy (and honorary Charity Girl) at each station. It was a huge success and we served every last drop of ice cream with excited patrons coming back for seconds, and even thirds.
Thanks everyone at Our Place. As usual we met a lot of great people, had interesting conversations and had some fun.
