Cones for Kids

June 20 is Bethany Cones for Kids Day!

Enjoying a scoop of a Quad Cities’ tradition will help local kids and families in need.  Whitey’s Ice Cream will donate half the sales of all cones sold on Monday, June 20, 2022 to benefit the programs and services at Bethany for Children & Families. This is the 36th year of “Cones for Kids”, and the annual event is one of the agency’s largest community fundraisers.

All Whitey’s locations will participate, in effort to further Bethany’s mission of keeping children safe, strengthening families, and building healthy communities.

“We are very happy to be holding the 36th 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. “We are thankful that we have been able to host to this fundraising effort to support the children of our community for so many years.”

Christina McNamara-Schmidt, Bethany’s Director of Development & Communication, said, “Bethany relies on generous local businesses so our caseworkers, educators, and therapists can help local kids and families in need.  Cones for Kids is a special day for the agency and the children we serve,” she said.

“Bethany is a fantastic cause and the support shown by the Quad City community has been amazing over the years. We are proud to continue the tradition,” said Jeff Tunberg, co-owner of Whitey’s Ice Cream.
