Austin Ice Cream Company Supports Families & Children that Rely on Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Texas
In celebration of National Ice Cream Month during July, Lick Honest Ice Creams is continuing its Cones for A Cause campaign for a second year in a row. The campaign supports families with hospitalized children that rely on Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas. All of Lick’s events during the month will benefit the charities, including a special event with Lazarus Brewing Co.
Throughout July, Lick Honest Ice Creams will donate ice cream and will be onsite at Austin’s Ronald McDonald Houses and the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Dell Children’s Medical Center and St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas to scoop ice creams for children and families. Additionally, their scoop shops in Austin (at 1100 S Lamar, #1135, 6555 Burnet Road, #200, and 1905 Aldrich St #150) will accept donations all month. On July 16, National Ice Cream Day, Lick Honest Ice Creams will donate 7% of the day’s total revenue RMHC CTX.
Lick and Lazarus will kick off a series of public Beer and Ice Cream Pairing events with one on Monday, July 31 at the brewery (1902 E 6th St.), from 6:30 to 8 pm, that will serve as a benefit for RMHC CTX. The cost will be $40 per person, and all of Lick’s proceeds will be donated to RMHC CTX.
The charities’ staff will be at each scoop shop on July 16, National Ice Cream Day, to provide more information about the organization. People making a contribution that day and throughout the month are encouraged to use #conesforacause in their social media posts.
About Lick Honest Ice Creams
Lick Honest Ice Creams has been making seasonal and sustainable artisan ice creams that celebrate the flavors and culture of Texas since 2011. Free of antibiotics and added hormones, the milk and cream in Lick’s proprietary mix come from the grass-fed cows of a single-source Central Texas dairy. The other ingredients are sourced from across the Lone Star State, with a focus on Central Texas, and are grown naturally and responsibly. Every component is made from scratch in Lick’s kitchen and each pint and tub of ice cream is packed by hand. Since opening, Lick Honest Ice Creams has received praise from several local and national publications, including The New York Times, The Cooking Channel, The Food Network, GQ, Thrillist, Southern Living, Food & Wine, Tasting Table, Travel + Leisure, American Doers, and People.
