Scoop-a-Thon 2015 Sets Record

by Bobby Guerette

The seventh annual Gelato Fiasco Scoop-a-Thon for the Brunswick Teen Center saw record attendance. Thank you to the more than 1,100 people who came as customers or volunteered as celebrity scoopers or entertainers. On average, one dish of gelato, pint of gelato, or cup of coffee was served every 40 seconds for the entire 12-hour day.

Gelato Fiasco donated $3,109 to the Teen Center, which beat the record sent in 2013. With additional sponsorships from other businesses and raffles, the Teen Center raised more than $5,500 for its operating budget.

Additional sponsors included Androscoggin Savings Bank; Big Top Deli; Henry and Marty; JHR Developement, LLC; Lighthouse Variety and Deli; Little Dog Coffee Shop; Morning Glory Natural Foods; and Priority Real Estate Group, LLC.
