We are thrilled to be part of the prestigious LA Art Show Opening Night Premiere Party! We will be serving our delicious Dandy Don’s HomeMade Ice Cream Sundaes, alongside Bel Air Bar & Grill, Pink’s Hot Dogs, and Hama Sushi (just to name a few)
Hosted by Golden Globe winner Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, 100% of Patron and Vanguard tickets and 60% of Friend tickets will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
Founded in 1994, the show has grown from a small regional event featuring 14 galleries to become the largest and longest running platform for fine art, bringing in more than 120 galleries representing 22 countries.
We saw Jamie Lee Curtis and Harry Hamlin at the Dream Halloween fundraiser for Children Affected by AIDS where we served 1100 sundaes.
On Thursday, October 14th, Dandy Don’s is helping out by serving ice cream sundaes at the Welcome Home Block Party fundraiser for Upward Bound House. Upward Bound House provides transitional housing for homeless families and affordable housing for seniors.
Jim Lewi on his LiveWorks Newsletter blog hailed the servers of Dandy Don’s Ice Cream for their intelligent and efficient work at a recent fundraiser. He wrote, “Don’s staff knew what they were doing. They were friendly, organized, and had pre-scooped their ice cream. This may sound like a stupid thing to notice, but believe me, at a festival or event, it makes all the difference. The super-nice woman who I spoke to explained that not only does it make serving customers faster and make sure servers’ arms don’t fall off, but also keeps their product’s consistency stable. When a customer gets their ice cream, it is at just the right temperature. Their ice cream is supposed to be hard and ‘you can’t really scoop hard ice cream’.”
