A Scoop of Support 


Original Rainbow Cone Launches Cones for the Community 

Here’s a sweet idea for supporting your community organization: Eat ice cream!  

Original Rainbow Cone officially launches its Cones for the Community program in April with BAPA as the beneficiary 

Cones for the Community will offer a different ice cream treat every month with a different local organization benefiting from the dollar-per-specialty-purchase donation.  

“We want to give back to the community that has given us so much,” said John Buonavolanto, Rainbow Cone Director of Marketing and Sales. One dollar from each sale goes to local efforts to contribute toward a better community.”  

Buonavolanto added that the program is also an opportunity to come up with cool new ice cream items. We think the one they designed for BAPA is a winner!  

Rainbow Cone’s Director of Operations Fernando Toscano described BAPA’s delicious treatthe Easter Sundae. It is a colorful confection that comes in a waffle bowl and is filled with a layer of pistachio ice cream covered by a layer of vanilla ice cream, topped with candy Easter eggs and adorned with edible bunny ears.  

“We are so thrilled to partner with Original Rainbow Cone on such a generous and creative idea,” said BAPA Executive Director Mary Jo Viero. “It’s sure to have a positive impact on BAPA and other local organizations.” 

During April, for every Easter Sundae purchased, Rainbow Cone will donate $1 to BAPA, so hop on over to 92nd and Western, Sun. through Thurs., 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Fri. and Sat., 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
