May 2, 2014

Dunphy’s Ice Cream is hosting a fund raiser to benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and its Hartford County Take Steps Walk.

Donna Pelletier and her son, Andre, of Bristol have formed a team to raise funds for CCFA. Their team name is Ruffus Runners and their goal is to raise $1000 to support CCFA’s patient service and research programs. As a patient, Andre has benefitted from CCFA’s services by attending CampOasis where he will be returning this summer.  Thus far, the Ruffus Runners have raised over $600. Dunphy’s Ice Cream will be donating 20% of the proceeds of all sales on Sunday, May 4, between the hours of 1 to 5 p.m.

CCFA’s Connecticut Take Steps Walk is Saturday, May 10 at GreatRiverPark in East Hartford. Registration begins at 9 a.m., the walk kicks off at 10:00 a.m.

Dunphy’s Ice Cream is at 912 Stafford Ave., Bristol.
