Scooper Bowl 2008

The Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl is the nation's largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival.

The event serves up ice cream from nine of the nation's leading ice cream companies while raising money for the Jimmy Fund, which supports cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Thanks to your generous support, the 2008 Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl raised more than $345,000, bringing the 26-year total to more than $2 million.

I went to the Scooper Bowl with my friends in 2008, after saying I'd go for six years straight and never making it. It was a lot of fun, with the benefit of knowing that it was for a good cause, so we ate more ice cream than we would have normally. My absolute favorite was the mango gelato, but I'd only recommend it if you really love mangoes!
