Promote Mentoring: Eat More Ice Cream

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands are partnering for the second year in a row with Omaha’s eCreamery Ice Cream & Gelato to present a flavor in celebration of mentoring. Called “Big Swirl, Little Crunch,” it combines peanut butter cups, chocolate covered waffle cone pieces and fudge swirls in a vanilla base. More importantly, though, a portion of the proceeds from sales goes to help mentoring programs with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands.
