National Ice Cream Day is coming up on Sunday, July 17th 2022. Local ice cream stands across Central and Upstate New York are celebrating the day by raising funds to help support the fight against cancer with the American Cancer Society.

According to Robert Elinskas of the American Cancer Society Northeast Region, participating local ice cream stands are donating 10% of sales to the American Cancer Society on this day.

Customers can enjoy their favorite cones, sundaes and shakes while supporting a local business and the fight against cancer at the same time."

· Coneheads Ice Cream - Oneida, NY

· Heid's Sweet Treats - Liverpool, NY

The promotion runs through normal business hours and happens rain or shine.
