The admission price for the All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival is ONLY $7.00 per person.

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.
