Scooping sundaes for charity

The American Dairy Association of Indiana’s 28th Annual Ice Cream Social has raised more than $6,500 for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana.

Deb Osza tells Brownfield Indiana’s 1,000 dairy producers help make the state rank second in ice cream production.

She says the event is an opportunity to give back.  “Our dairy farmers have always had a tradition of supporting youth and education,” she says.  “That tradition goes back more than 100 years and we’re just continuing with that here today.”

Osza says while visitors were enjoying their ice cream sundaes, they learned more about how the dairy industry works.  “Today is an awesome opportunity for us to connect the dots with consumers and help them understand where their food comes from,” she says.  “How we get milk, how we get ice cream.  We’ve got a cow here and some calves so people can experience that first hand.”

Edy’s Ice Cream donated the ice cream for the event.  Osza estimates between 600 and 700 gallons of ice were served.
