I’ll be dipping Italian ice for a cause on Thursday

10421528_10203370271110179_2567136248115303802_nI’ve been needing an arm workout, and thanks to Heidi Howard, the executive director of Deaf Kids’ Art Workout, I’m going to get one.

On Thursday night, Shocker women’s coach Jody Adams and I will be “Celebrity Dippers” and a fundraiser from 6 to 8 p.m. at Rita’s Italian Ice at 2929 N. Rock Road that will benefit DeafKAN.

Jody and I will make frozen treats for the people, and Rita’s will donate 20 percent of their sales from the evening to to DeafKAN, a group that helps deaf children open up through arts and performance.

This place offers all kinds of delicious frozen treats, from custard to the sorbet-like Italian ice to mix-ins. I suggest getting one of each.

Hope to see you there.
