Ciao Bella is gearing up for the 29th Annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl. The Scooper Bowl is an event held every year in Boston, Massachusetts that raises money for cancer research and care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
The Scooper Bowl will be held at the City Hall Plaza in Boston and will last from June 7th until June 9th. Scooping will begin around noon and will continue until 8pm every day. That means 24 hours or 1440 minutes or 86,400 seconds of scooping!
This year will mark Ciao Bella’s second year at the Scooper Bowl and we couldn’t be happier to be back! Not only are we helping a great cause, but we’re scooping for those people who have been affected by cancer in some way. On a personal note, my nonno (that’s Italian for grandfather) lost his battle to colon cancer and two of my uncles lost their lives to lung cancer. I’ll be keeping them in mind while I’m scooping next week!
To purchase tickets to the event, go to the Jimmy Fund’s tickets page and buy them online or just buy them at the door. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your A-game!
