RIDGEFIELD, Conn. Ridgefield ice cream parlor Deborah Ann's won't just be selling ice cream Wednesday night, it'll also be raising money for cancer research.
From 5 to 9 p.m., volunteers from Fairfield County CureSearch Walk will take over Deborah Ann's Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street to raise awareness and funds for its walk to be held later this month.
All the proceeds and tips earned during those four hours will go to the walk.
Bags inspired by the artwork of Eloise Gould, who died from a muscle cancer at age 14 in 2010, will also be for sale. Gould's death was the inspiration for her aunt Beth Butler, chair of the Fairfield County CureSearch Walk, to begin the walk.
There will also be an opportunity for people to sign up to participate at the walk during the event.
Fairfield County CureSearch Walk, which raises much-needed funds for children's cancer research, will be held Sunday, Sept. 23, at the Ridgefield Boys & Girls Club on Governor Street.
