Join us at the Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl!

June 04, 2019

The #YassoTour is officially in full swing and we’re so excited to be returning to one of our favorite Boston events this year, The 37th annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl® (June 4 – 6, 2019) – the nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival at Boston’s City Hall Plaza to support Dana-Farber’s mission to conquer cancer.

Adding to the fun this year, fans attending the event can head to the Yasso Snack Buddies Zone where the next generation of dessert disrupters will be able to enjoy Yasso’s new Snack Buddies and create their own dream flavor! Fans who share their amazing creations with #YassoSnackBuddies might just have their idea turned into the real thing!

To learn more about the Jimmy Fund and the Scooper bow, we’ve chatted with with Jillian Davis, Officer, Event Fundraising at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, who shared more information on the Scooper Bowl and other ways fans can get involved to support Dana-Farber’s mission to help these incredible children.

What is the Scooper Bowl?

The 37th annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl® presented by Valvoline Instant Oil Change, will take place at Boston’s City Hall Plaza on June 4, 5, and 6 from noon to 8 p.m. Scooper Bowl is the nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival and will feature more than 40 flavors from top ice cream and frozen yogurt companies.

What do the proceeds from the Scooper Bowl support?

All proceeds benefit the Jimmy Fund and support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

What’s your favorite part of the event?

I love how much joy ice cream and frozen yogurt can bring to people! This event puts smiles on everyone’s faces because they are celebrating the beginning of summer in Boston with yummy frozen treats—and supporting a worthy cause at the same time. It’s a win-win!

How can fans help support the Jimmy Fund outside of Scooper Bowl?

There are lots of other Jimmy Fund events and programs throughout the year which support cancer care and research at Dana-Farber. There’s something for everyone! From walks to food tastings, Little League to cheerleading, and everything in between—you can find a way to support the Jimmy Fund just by doing activities you love.
