Free Graeter's ice cream on Friday

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - You can get a free scoop of ice cream at participating Graeter's locations on Friday, Sept. 14.

Graeter's has teamed up with The Cure Starts Now for the annual Cones for the Cure campaign.

From 5 to 8 p.m., participating Graeter's will be giving away a free scoop of Elena's Blueberry Pie ice cream.

Elena's Blueberry Pie is a special flavor that was created in honor of 6-year-old Elena Desserich, the inspiration behind The Cure Starts Now. A portion of each sale of Elena's Blueberry Pie ice cream goes directly to the charity to fund vital research in pursuit of a revolutionary "homerun" strategy.

To redeem your cone, 'like' the Cones for the Cure Facebook page, then stop by your local Graeter's.
