Fundae crowd has a 'Jolly Roger' good time

Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

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 and Mike 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.
