Get free ice cream and help out a good cause.
Ben & Jerry’s in Old Town Alexandria is participating in the company’s Free Cone Day and the Carpenter’s Shelter has been selected as this year’s beneficiary.
The ice cream parlor at 103 S. Union St. will be serving up free cones from noon to 8 p.m.
Guest scoopers include Mayor Bill Euille, Vice Mayor Kerry Donley, former Councilman David Speck and City Council candidates John Chapman, Tim Lovain, Allison Silberberg and Justin Wilson.
Ben & Jerry’s will donate tubs of ice cream to Carpenter’s Shelter so the residents may participate in their own Cone Day at the shelter.
