FOXBORO, MASS. (WHDH) — Hundreds of people turned out at Gillette Stadium to eat as much ice cream as possible at Saturday’s annual Scooper Bowl.
The nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival has been held since 1983 and all proceeds from the $20 tickets go to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.
“It’s great. We love to volunteer for the Jimmy Fund and then be able to be at an event like this. It’s great to see everyone out here,” said volunteer Kaylene Murphy.
Liz Paananen, whose four-year-old daughter Avery is battling leukemia, said the donations will help everyone in a family dealing with cancer.
“The Jimmy Fund is why my daughter is here today, everything they do to make her feel comfortable,” Paananen said. “They don’t even just help the kids, they help the families, so my other kids, my husband – they’re just always there for us.”
