Every year, the Henderson locations enlist the help of local celebrities to help scoop ice cream to benefit local children’s charities. This year, the Nevada Community Learning Centers (formerly Classroom on Wheels) and St. Jude’s Ranch for Children raised more than $2,000 combined over the course of the day’s event.
