Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Friday, June 14th, 2019

July is less than a month away and at Leopold's Ice Cream that means two things - National Ice Cream Month and the start of the I Pledge for Ice Cream Project!

As a sweet way to say, "Thanks for Your Patriotism," on July 1st from 4-7PM, Leopold's Ice Cream will give any child (age 12 and under, accompanied by an adult) who can recite the Pledge of Allegiance a free child's scoop in a cake cone, cup or sugar cone!  Patriotic participants should come to 212 East Broughton Street on July 1st from 4-7PM for the I Pledge for Ice Cream kick-off event.

After the kick-off, Leopold's Ice Cream on Broughton Street will hold additional I Pledge for Ice Cream events each Monday in July from 4-7pm.  The 2019 dates are as follows: July 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29.  That's five, I Pledge events this year!

Ice cream entrepreneur and Hollywood movie producer, Stratton Leopold and his wife Mary, launched the I Pledge for Ice Cream Project in Savannah, GA on July 1, 2010 to underscore the importance of teaching patriotism to young children.  This simple yet effective project has been wildly successful, spreading all over the United States with 39 states and 138 frozen dessert shops participating!
