Harrisburg Walk for Wishes Event #WalkForWishes #BlueBunny

I love supporting a good cause...especially when I can show my support locally here in my own hometown. If you are in the south central Pennsylvania area or in Harrisburg specifically...this is one event you will want to attend.

Blue Bunny Ice Cream in partnership with Make-A-Wish will be sponsoring the Walk for Wishes event in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The event is on October 18th, 2015. Check-in time will be 8:30 AM. The event is being held on City Island at the Carousal Pavilion, 10 N. Second Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101.

Blue Bunny is committed to the Make-A-Wish foundation and they need all of our support. You can visit to learn more about their commitment and how you can help support this wonderful cause.

As part of its retail initiative, Blue Bunny will team up with Weis in Harrisburg during the months of September and October to donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for every package of Blue Bunny Mini Swirls or Ice Cream Sandwiches sold. Please visit the Weis Markets in Harrisburg and pick up these products to help show your support.

This sounds like a wonderful event and cause . I won't be nearby for the walk, but I shall try to use the hashtags on social media during the Sunday event.
