Village Ice Cream Fundraiser

Tony Krickl has a COURIER City Beat post about a number of events in the Claremont Village. Besides last night's Claremont Family Festival, née Claremont Wednesdays, Krickl mentions a fundraiser at Bert & Rocky's tonight beginning at 5pm:

On Thursday night, you can have the Mayor serve you up a cone or sundae at Bert & Rocky's Creme Co. Money raised will go to Team Claremont supporting Relay for Life. The event goes from 5 to 7 p.m.

Like the Le Mans road race, Claremont's Relay for Life runs for 24 hours, beginning at 9am on May 16th at the Claremont High School track.

Bert & Rocky's is located at 242 Yale Ave. in the Village. A portion of sales tonight will go to Relay for Life, which raises money for the American Cancer Society.

Krickl also notes that Friday Nights Live returns to the Village tomorrow, which will coincide with the monthly Friday Night Art Walk.

The City's website has more info on Friday Nights Live:

Friday Nights Live is Back in the Village!
