Gelato Fiasco Scoop-a-thon - Wednesday, April 26!

Gelato Fiasco and the Brunswick Area Teen Center are excited to announce the 15th annual Teen Center Scoop-a-thon! Area businesses and residents are invited to support community youth at the Flagship Gelato Fiasco store in Brunswick from 11am-11pm Wednesday, April 26th!  Gelato Fiasco will donate $2 from every pint or dish sold to the Brunswick Area Teen Center. Purchases will count from all customers and no special code is needed.

Throughout the day there will be entertainment, a 50/50 raffle, celebrity scoopers and Bowdoin College will be providing nighttime entertainment and scoopers. Celebrity Scoopers include Hollywood to Maine transplants, husband and wife Xander Berkley and Sarah Clarke of film and tv fame from 5:30 – 7 pm!

This is the 18th year of the Teen Center Program and 15th Annual Gelato Fiasco Scoop-a-Thon. These annual events have seen over 1,000 people participating yearly and have raised over $100,000 for the Teen Center Program!

“The community has been coming together for this event for over a decade!” said Joshua Davis, co-founder of Gelato Fiasco. “It’s great to see so many people supporting our teens, year after year.”

The success of the annual Teen Center Scoop-a-Thon fundraiser inspired Gelato Fiasco to create its Scooping for Community Program, which provides an opportunity for non-profit organizations to mobilize supporters and raise funds for their organizations in the greater Brunswick and Portland areas. The program provides support to more than two dozen school and community organizations each year.

Also this year, Big Top Deli will donate 15% of their sales from April 26 to the Teen Center! Stop by Big Top for lunch and Gelato for dessert!
