Attention ice-cream lovers: Tomorrow is your chance to join Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Jerry Greenfield on a bike ride and get free ice cream gift certificates just for showing up by bike.
Greenfield will visit three local Ben & Jerry’s shops tomorrow afternoon beginning at the SE Hawthorne location (1428 SE 36th Ave) at around 12:30pm. After that, Mr. Greenfield will pedal a PDX Pedicab across the river to visit two other shops.
Besides riding bikes and eating ice cream, the event is also meant to raise awareness for New Avenues for Youth, a non-profit that provides supportive employment and job training for homeless and at-risk young people in the community. (The Ben & Jerry’s shop in downtown Portland (524 SW Yamhill St) is owned and operated by the organization.)
So join an ice cream icon for a fun and easy spin, learn more about a great organization, and get some free ice cream along the way.
Check out the event listing for more details.
