ICE CREAM WE LOVE is Back and Sweeter than Ever!
Kicking off 2019 on a sweet note, Bal Harbour Shops is partnering with leading local and national ice cream makers for its second annual philanthropic weekend in support of Holtz Children’s Hospital at University of Miami’s Jackson Memorial Medical Center. We welcome locals and visitors of all ages to this over-the-top ice cream festival, “Ice Cream We Love,” on Saturday, January 12th, and Sunday, January 13th.
Held in the luxury shopping destination’s lush first-level courtyards and second-level promenades from 1-5 p.m., the flavorful festival will feature a curated selection of ice cream parlor pop-up booths representing more than 20 vendors – from Italian ice and gelato to paletas and nitrogen ice cream.
Guests are invited to stroll the al fresco center while window-shopping and tasting the fabulous flavors of renowned national brands such as New York’s Ample Hills Creamery and DŌ, Cookie Dough Confections as well as Izzy’s Ice Cream from Minnesota; and local artisanal ice cream producers including Amazonica; Bianco Gelato; Brain Freeze Nitrogen Ice Cream; Candy & Cones; Cielito Artisan Pops; Dasher & Crank; Frice Cream; Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor, Restaurant and Country Store; Jeremiah’s Italian Ice; LadyFingrs; Le Sirenuse Miami; Le Zoo; Not Another Organic Brand; Proper Ice Cream; Serendipity Creamery; The Melted Scoop; and Wynwood Parlor. Boutique confection bakery Sweet Guilt will also be participating with a selection of delicious desserts.
The weekend-long event celebrates the legacy of Bal Harbour Shops founder Stanley Whitman who was a longstanding supporter of Holtz Children’s Hospital. With Mr. Whitman’s favorite dessert in mind, Bal Harbour Shops created the event to honor his dedication to philanthropy. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Holtz Children’s Hospital, supporting its mission to enhance and expand its pediatric specialty programs.
“Following the success of last year’s ‘Ice Cream We Love’ in which we helped raise more than $76,000, we are proud to once again partner with Holtz Children’s Hospital to offer Bal Harbour Shops’ guests a sweet treat,” said Matthew Whitman Lazenby, president and chief executive officer of Whitman Family Development. “As this event grows year to year, we will continue to introduce experiences that will create unforgettable memories for our visitors while having a positive impact on the community.”
Pre-sale tickets are no longer available. Limited tickets are available on-site for $50 for adults and $15 for children. To stay up-to-date on this event, please follow Bal Harbour Shops on Facebook and Instagram using the handle @balharbourshops.
