1 (800) DANDY DON | 818 994 0111 [email protected]

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Staff and, most importantly, children of the Los Angeles Make-A-Wish Foundation, I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude for your services as a participating restaurant for the 8th Annual Wine Tasting and Auction on February 24th. Even though the rain gods were not cooperating with us, this event was undoubtedly the best ever for Make-A-Wish! And we could not have done it without your help!

Preliminary gross revenue estimates from the Wine Tasting and Auction are over $400,000 - not too bad considering the inclement weather. We anticipate being able to fund over 75 wishes from the net proceeds, which means that over 75 children in Los Angeles County have you to thank for making their wish come true.

Again, thank you for your generosity, support, and most importantly, your time in helping us to provide hope, strength and joy to our children. You are a true star as we Share the Power of a Wish.

Bart Verry — Make-A-Wish Foundation   

It’s like homemade: really great consistency, great selection, quality. I’m confident in your ice cream and great service.

On behalf of Starlight Children’s Foundation Staff, Board of Directors and most importantly the Children and families we serve, I’d like to thank you for your very generous discount for your delicious ice cream, at our recent event at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Your support to our Foundation made a great difference in the quality of our KAN program. I’d like to also thank the staff who dedicated their time to the event and were patient and friendly. Thank you so much for your continuous support. I look forward to working with you to help brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families.

Karineh Moradian — Starlight Children’s Foundation   

Thank you and everyone at Dandy Don's HomeMade Ice Cream and Sundae Bar Catering for once again participating in Dream Halloween. Your continuous support, generosity, and contribution to the event enabled the Children Affected By Aids Foundation to keep the cost of the event down, so the money raised could be applied to those in need - children affected by AIDS. Your kindness and efforts helped make Dream Halloween 2001 a great success with over 1 million dollars in contributions.

Once again, on behalf of the Board of Directors, the CAAF staff, the many dedicated volunteers like myself, and most importantly, the children, I thank you for your kindness. You are truly helping us make a difference in the lives of these special children.

Veronica King — Dream Halloween In-Kind Contributions Chair Children Affected By Aids Foundation   

Thanks to you and so many other caring individuals, I am proud to report that our first annual Art Works! event was a success. Your generosity and contribution to the event enable Free Arts for Abused Children to keep the cost of the event down, so the money raised could be applied to those in need - abused children.

Once again, on behalf of the Board of Directors, the many dedicated volunteers like myself, and most importantly, the children, I thank you for your support. You are truly helping us make a difference in the lives of these special children.

Veronica King — Free Arts for Abused Children   

The reason we like it is because all the customers love it.

On behalf of everyone involved with Special Olympics Southern California, I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to you and the members of Dandy Don’s HomeMade Ice Cream for your generous support of this year’s Pier del Sol event. We are most grateful for your continued participation in this event.

This was our fourth year of staging the event, and we were delighted to see the positive growth it has made and the enthusiastic response it continues to receive. Besides being our major fundraiser, it provides a unique opportunity for our supporters to interact with our athletes and gain a greater awareness of their capabilities.

The highlight of the event for our guests and one of the main draws for selling tickets to the event is the VIP brunch. We thank you for being an important part of the brunch with the delicious ice cream sundaes you served. Please extend our thanks to your staff who participated and helped to make it a great event for our attendees.

Once again, thank you for helping make Pier del Sol such a successful event for Special Olympics Southern California and the athletes we serve.

Jane Wright — Special Olympics   

On behalf of the Los Angeles Make-A-Wish Foundation, I would like to thank you for your generous donation of 500 ice cream sundaes for our annual Holiday Party held on December 15, 2000. Every year, Arrow 93, CBS Television and generous individuals like yourself, partner with Make-A-Wish to make the holiday season special for our wish children.

With your generosity, we were able to create a special moment for the 300 children and their families that attended this very special event. The children’s eyes illuminated when they had the opportunity to pick out their favorite toppings for their ice cream sundaes. In addition to receiving toys, the children also participated in a number of different activities that included ornament making, quilt decorating and face painting.

The Los Angeles Make-A-Wish Foundation, founded in 1983, is dedicated to granting the special wishes of children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 living with life-threatening illnesses. Make-A-Wish strives to provide memories of joy and laughter, moments that are dramatically different from those of hospitals, doctors and treatment programs. This past year wishes were granted to about 300 children in Los Angeles County, all of whom were invited to this event.

Once again, we thank you deeply for your desire to play a part in the lives of the special children we serve.

Georgina Diaz — Make-A-Wish Foundation   

How can I thank you enough for your generosity to help Special Olympics and St. Mary’s Academy? I thank you so much for what you have done.

Ivy Chu   

Just a short note to thank you so very much for making our Ice Cream Social such a huge success yesterday. Jeri and Oswaldo were just fabulous and Dandy Don's HomeMade Ice Cream Sundae Bar was the hit of the week! We received very positive reviews from the employees who could not stop talking about the event.

On a personal level, I also want to thank you for making my job so easy. I really appreciated all your efforts in coordinating this function for us. You were always so pleasant when I called for a fifth and sixth time regarding changes. It was a joy working with you and your crew!

We hope to see you and Dandy Don’s delicious ice cream again real soon! Thanks again for everything!

Stacey McCoy — Jeffer, Mangels, Butler & Marmaro   

I just wanted to express my appreciation to you and your staff for a wonderful Ice Cream Social. Your staff was engaging, energetic and very professional! The tenants, as well as the Luckman Family, and employees enjoyed them, your tasty homemade ice cream and the wonderful and relaxing sounds of Tropical Wave. We look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you once again!

Monyca Brown — Luckman Management Company   

I’ve known Dandy Don for a long time. His product has always been consistent, reliable, and high quality. And they have contemporary flavors.

Richie DeMane — Leila’s - Oak Park   

First-rate service, first-rate product.

Paul Tyler — John O’ Groats Restaurant   

I use Dandy Don’s because it’s great. It’s fabulous ice cream and the customers love it.

Jaime Morales — Mo’s Fine Food   

Thank you for making our company picnic a great success. We look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

Angela Ellis - Raytheon   

I just wanted to take a moment to extend my appreciation for such a fantastic job on our company ice cream social on Friday. Jeremy and Kris were both very professional, accommodating and extremely friendly to not only myself, but also every employee at Futuredontics, Inc. that they assisted.

Jeremy and Kris arrived promptly and were quite efficient in setting up and breaking down their serving area. They had several of the employees laughing and enjoying themselves and that is exactly the type of atmosphere that I had envisioned while I was planning this. When the event was concluded, they made sure for me that not even a tiny piece of granola remained on our carpet, for which I am very grateful. The tarp that they brought to the event helped control the vast majority of accidentally spilled sprinkles and other confections.

Everyone completely enjoyed themselves and we look forward to working with you again in the future. I wish you continued success.

Julien-Jordan — Michaels Futuredontics   

I know if a restaurant cares enough to buy your ice cream, it’s a good restaurant.

Michael Horn — Owner of Cable Radio Network   

Thank you so much for participating in our 8th Annual Make-A-Wish Wine Tasting and Auction. Your stand was one of the most successful. It certainly made for a fun evening.

Michelle Halpern — Make-A-Wish Foundation   

It’s a phenomenal ice cream - in a league of its own. It’s creamy and light, and it melts in your mouth. People go nuts over it.

Selwyn Yosslowitz — Marmalade Cafe Group   

My husband has been hosting a series of dinners at our home this week for his international clients. We have been using your services for dessert - very successfully I might add!

I wanted to tell you that your representative, Rod, is likely one of the best serving/catering persons I have worked with. Not only is he a fine representative of Dandy Don's HomeMade Ice Cream, he has made himself a full team member of the crew that is working here. He arrives promptly to set up, then spends the next several hours helping other staff members to dress tables, arrange flowers - he even sweeps floors! During meal service, he helps to clear tables and serve drinks. All of this on his own! Additionally, he is pleasant, smiling, polite, high energy and fun!

We live in an era where people seem to have forgotten what good service is, and where people are more likely to complain than compliment. Both my husband and I wanted you to know that Rod is a joy to have around, and a credit to your establishment.

Sandra MacDonald   

On behalf of Planned Parenthood we want to thank you for your participation at our Food Fare. Your wonderful ice cream is always enjoyed by everyone and your festive display is always a hit. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.

Susan Levich and Carol Nemoy — Planned Parenthood Los Angeles   

I use Dandy Don’s ice cream because I know the man who makes it, I like the man who makes it, and I trust the man who makes it. And besides that, it’s the best-tasting ice cream around.

David May — Café Cordiale - Sherman Oaks   

On behalf of the Board of Governors of Knesset Israel, please accept our sincere thank you for donating the ice cream for our 75th Anniversary celebration. Everyone loved the ice cream and was pleasantly surprised to know it was kosher.

Dorene & Richard Friedman — Temple Knesset Israel   

The best ice cream made by mortal man.

Juan Hovey — L.A. Times Staff Writer   

We’re happy with your product. We’ve been using Dandy Don’s since 1992 because it’s so good.

Sal Correa — Woodland Hills Hilton   

I want to thank you for responding to Mrs. Chu in providing the delicious ice cream and all the toppings for St. Mary's "Derby Day" celebration. You would have enjoyed seeing the happy faces and also hear the exclamation of delight as people topped off their treats. Many, many thanks!

Sister Jay — St. Mary’s Academy
