National Ice Cream Day: Serving scoops for local charities

Sunday, July 19th is National Ice Cream Day and this year there are two more reasons to join in the festivities. Our new July “Berries, Berries, Berries” menu is now available and, to spread the happiness around and thank our local communities, we’re inviting all visitors to our Portland and LA scoop shops to nominate a favorite non-profit organization to win a portion of that day’s proceeds. One scoop, two scoops, three scoops. All in the name of charity!

To participate, visit any Salt & Straw location in Portland or LA on Sunday, July 19th, post a picture of your favorite scoop on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, tag #NationalIceCreamDay, and mention @SaltandStraw and the username of your favorite local charity. A portion of the day’s proceeds will go to the organization that receives the most mentions, one in Portland and one in LA.

Contest details:

  • One vote per person per social media account
  • To be eligible, the non-profit must be a 501c organization, be local to Portland or Los Angeles and must directly service causes in Portland or Los Angeles.
  • The winning non-profits will be announced by July 31st, 2015.
