Just because you have 350 gallons of ice cream on hand doesn't necessarily mean you'll be left wondering what to do with all the leftovers.

“I think one year we had two gallons left. ... People love their ice cream,” said Pressley Ridge prexy Susanne Cole.

Touted as “helping children one scoop at a time,” the annual Ice Cream Fundae was held at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium on Aug. 11, much to the delight of the 2,000 in attendance.

“I haven't seen any ice cream that is left over,” said media coordinator Kelley Reed.

Laurah andMike Currey, Douglas Mullins, Eddie Yongo, Christine Cohen, Tisha Germany, Michael McMullen, Jolie Schroeder, William Wycoff, and even David Newell (aka Mr. McFeely) were spied in the crowd.

Nine flavors were competing for the crown, although it was Federal Home Loan Bank Pittsburgh's Jolly Roger Raspberry Truffle that snagged the crowd favorite.

The event raised more than $100K for Pressley Ridge, which has served disadvantaged kids and their families since 1832.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
