Cold Stone's Booty benefit
During July, Cold Stone Creamery (which recently opened at Epicentre) will feature “ Anne's Booty Creation,” a special ice cream flavor of named vanilla ice cream mixed with raspberries, graham cracker pie crust and whipped topping.
All proceeds from the sale of that flavor will go to Anne Lynn's “24 Hour of Booty” team, said spokeswoman Jennifer Walker. Lynn is a south Charlotte resident and a lung cancer survivor.
Cold Stone Creamery stores in University City and Ballantyne will also participate. Details: 24hoursofbooty.org.
