Volunteers with the Luis Miramontes Memorial Foundation, in partnership with Dreyer’s, are inviting north state residents to start their day with a bowl of ice cream.
Raising awareness of childhood cancer has never been sweeter.
From 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, CR Gibbs American Grille and Moonstone Bistro will host Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day as part of an international effort to honor children who are battling cancer.
A $5 donation is suggested. Proceeds from the day will be donated to the Alyssa Araiza Wings of Angels to help fund that organization’s efforts to aid families with children suffering from pediatric cancer or life-threatening illness. Since 2002, Wings of Angels has provided more than $750,000 in assistance to more than 160 families.
Established in 2011, the Luis Miramontes Memorial Foundation seeks to improve cancer care in the north state by helping to equip health care providers with state-of-the-art technology.
C.R. Gibbs is located at 2300 Hilltop Drive and Moonstone Bistro is located at 3425 Placer St. in the Placer Heights Plaza Shopping Center.
