Wishes granted for ice cream

Thirteen Cold Stone Creamery stores will give away a 3-ounce portion of Jack's Creation on Thursday, from 5-8 p.m., in exchange for a donation to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The promotion is the culmination of a monthlong fundraiser that will benefit Make-a-Wish, Hawaii.

“;This monthlong fundraiser is a great and easy opportunity for our community to support such a heartwarming organization,”; said Karen Kozen-Ryder, area developer for Cold Stone Creamery.

“;Cold Stone ice cream, children and wishes coming true create the perfect combination for a joyful experience.”;

Cold Stone Creamery has partnered with the Make-a-Wish Foundation of America since 2002, generating $3.2 million in donations.

Throughout the month, every Cold Stone store will sell paper Wish Stars for $1 each.
