“Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.”

Upcoming Events

What: 3rd Annual Maynards Ice Cream Showdown
When: Saturday, September 10 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Where:  Maynards Market, 400 N Toole Ave., Tucson, AZ 85701

With summer quickly coming to an end, it’s time to start saying “see ya later” to frozen tasty treats such as ice cream…  I’m just kidding. This is Arizona, land of eternal heat where you can enjoy ice cream in the middle of winter. Nonetheless, you’re invited to Maynards 3rd Annual Ice Cream showdown where local creameries get together to help Ben’s Bells raise money to continue on in their mission of kindness. Last year, $5,000 was raised. This year, I think we can definitely beat that. Tickets for the festival are $10, which gets you 10 tastes, with extra tastes costing $1 and benefitting Ben’s Bells directly. There will be additional food for sale in case you decide ice cream doesn’t make a suitable dinner replacement (though I think it does).

This is a very kid friendly event! Ever After Parties will be at the event with Frozen princesses Elsa and Ana. Ben’s Bells is bringing their Kind Crusader super heroes and an activities station. Plus, what kid doesn’t like ice cream?
