We raised over $500,000 for the kids at CHKD in 2023!!! 

This wouldn't have been possible without the amazing actions of our crewmembers and the incredible support of the community.

In 2023, we sold nearly 10,000 Blizzards on Miracle Treat Day, Dipped over 4,000 cones on Free Cone Day, received over 800,000 individual donations from fans, and our staff donated nearly $40,000 with payroll deductions.

All in all, 2023 was our BEST year yet and it's paving the way for us to reach our goal of raising $5,000,000 for kids at CHKD by 2030.

Thanks for your help in reaching this major milestone!
