Ice cream store offering free dips for donations
Sylas & Maddys, 1014 Mass., is having a fund-raiser today for Ballard Community Center in Lawrence.
Customers who donate two nonperishable items will receive a free single dip of ice cream in a cake cone, sugar cone or dish. If customers donate four items, they receive a single dip of ice cream in a waffle cone.
The ice cream shop's employees are donating their time and tips to help the center.
The store, which has been open for seven years, is owned by Cindy England.
Name that company
I'm one of the world's most recognized brands, having begun with a handful of beans in Seattle's Pike Place Market in 1971. In 1991, I became the first privately owned U.S. company to let part-time workers participate in a stock-option program. I went public in 1992. Since then, my stock has perked up some 3,000 percent. You'll find my more-than-7,500 retail locations in China, Kuwait, Indonesia, Switzerland, Peru and elsewhere. I'm selling ice cream now, through a joint venture, and tea, through my Tazo Tea Co. subsidiary. I was first mate on Herman Melville's Pequod, pursuing Moby-Dick. Who am I?
