At the very least, Pressley Ridge's Ice Cream Fu ndae proved beyond a doubt that gracious, philanthropic endeavors don't always negate a competitive streak.

“It gets crazy. Once they start sending out volunteers with a tray, you know it's on,” said Morgan Kister, who co-chaired the event with Allison Hannon.

It was guestimated that 2,000 guests, including Pressley Ridge prexy Susanne Cole, Brad Funari, Beth and Shawn Essey, and Sandra Tomlinson, were roaming the grounds of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium on Aug. 17 in search of the perfect scoop. Thirteen flavors representing just as many sponsors were vying for the ready-to-be-hoisted ice cream trophy.

Committee members included Patty Folmer, Leah Kaplan, Tim Rice, Amber Taylor, Julie McMullen, Caitlin Lasky, Patti McCloud, Jamie Orr, Christina Penn, and Amy Taylor.

More than 2,745 guests consumed 360 gallons of Hagan Premium Ice Cream.

The event raised $120K.
