Let's Lick Leukemia... I Scream, You
Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream! Over the past 10 years The Joshua
Kahan Fund's "all you can eat" ice cream events have raised nearly $700,000
to help find a cure for pediatric leukemia.
On Friday July 3rd, Saturday July 4th, and Sunday July 5th, 2009, you can
make a sweet donation to help in the fight against pediatric leukemia while
enjoying scoops of family fun at the 11th Annual All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream
Festival on the Great Plaza at Penn's Landing.
The 11th All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival will be held from Noon to 5:00
p.m. on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. The admission price for the
All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival is ONLY $5.00 per person.
Indulge in frozen ice cream delights from over 20 different Ice Cream &
Water Ice companies. Family favorites such as Haagen-Dazs, Ben & Jerry's,
Edy's, Breyer's/Good Humor, Bassett's, Turkey Hill, Jack & Jill, and
Philadelphia Water Ice will all be present along with many others sampling
their cool treats.
All net proceeds from the event benefit the Joshua Kahan Fund to fight
pediatric leukemia and the Children's Hospital Oncology Division. The
Joshua Kahan Fund was established in memory of Joshua Kahan, a two-year-old
boy who loved ice cream, fire trucks and his family. Joshua lost his
battle with AML Leukemia in 1997, seven weeks short of his third birthday.
In honor of their son, Jeffrey and Michele Kahan formed the Joshua Kahan
Fund to raise awareness for pediatric leukemia research and improve the
quality of life for pediatric cancer patients and their families.
This festival is one of the many festivals, concerts and events taking
place at Penn's Landing this summer. For more information on the 11th
