All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream at 2012 Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl


The 30th annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl will take place at Boston’s City Hall Plaza from 12 to 8 p.m. on June 5, 6, and 7. The event, which will be held rain or shine, features more than 35 flavors of popular ice cream and other frozen treats at the nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival. All proceeds support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

“It’s a fun summer event to benefit the Jimmy Fund and a real treat for ice cream fanatics,” says Cathleen Genova, senior media specialist at Dana-Farber/The Jimmy Fund. Since its inception in 1983, the Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl has raised more than $3.2 million for this cause. Scooper Bowl general admission is $10; $5 for children age 3 to 9. Children under 3 are free. A three-day Scooper pass for ambitious ice cream fans is $20. For more information and to purchase tickets, call 617-632-5655 or visit
