Fentons Dishes Up Ice Cream for a Good Cause Saturday and 'Sundae'

This weekend, teams of Oakland and Berkeley firefighters compete to build the best sundaes. And Fenton's Creamery will donate 25 percent of the proceeds from the "Firefighter Sundae" to the Oakland Firefighters' Random Acts project a

What's better than the warm glow you get from supporting a good cause? Quite possibly, getting a cool glow by relishing a "Firefighter's Sundae," a concoction of two raspberry-favored ice creams garnished with raspbery topping and cold fudge, roasted almonds and a cherry on top.

Throughout November, Fentons Creamery, 4226 Piedmont Ave., Oakland will donate 25 percent of the proceeds from Firefighter's Sundaes (aka Myrtle's Creation) to the Oakland Firefighters' Random Acts of Kindness program.

Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 10 and 11, noon to 4 p.m., will be a showcase for the project. At 3 p.m. each day, teams of firefighters (Oakland vs. Berkeley on Saturday, two Oakland teams Sunday) will compete to build the best sundae. According to Fentons, "a whipped cream fight is guaranteed." 

A vintage fire truck will be parked outside for kids to climb on. Patrons are encouraged to bring new toys, stuffed animals and books, which the firefighters will distribute to children in need.
