June 14 is the 35th Bethany “Cones for Kids” Day

Whitey’s Ice Cream will donate half the sales of all cones sold on Monday, June 14, 2021 to benefit the programs and services at Bethany for Children & Families. This is the 35th year of “Cones for Kids”, and the tradition that started in 1986 still remains strong. All Whitey’s locations will participate in the fundraising event, which will help to further Bethany’s mission of keeping children safe, strengthening families, and building healthy communities.

“We are thrilled to be holding the 35th annual Cones for Kids event to help support the programs and services offered by Bethany,” said Jon Tunberg, co-owner of Whitey’s Ice Cream. “It is wonderful that we have been able to host to this fundraising effort to support the children of our community for so many years.”

Jim Sanderlin, Bethany’s Director of Development & Communication, said, “Bethany has relied on the generosity of the QC community for over a century. Cones for Kids has become a very special day for the agency and the children we serve. We’re so grateful to once again partner with the best ice cream company out there!”

“Bethany is a fantastic cause and over the 35 years we have been doing Cones for Kids, the support shown by the Quad City community has been absolutely amazing. We are proud to continue the tradition this year as well,” said Jeff Tunberg, co-owner of Whitey’s Ice Cream.
