Emmaus Women’s Shelter will host the third Miss Emma’s Ice Cream Crankin’ Social on Lafayette Square from 2 to 4 p.m on Sunday.
“It’s a celebration of the community rallying behind a cause that’s continuing to grow, an issue that’s been a burden in LaGrange for so long,” said Jessica David, the shelter’s interim director and organizer of the event.
All-you-can-sample ice cream will be available for $5 per individual and $20 per family. Over 15 ice cream donors, including some elected officials, will compete in four categories: Best fruit; Best chocolate; Best Overall; and Most Original.
Guests should also bring change to ride the train, bounce house and have their face painted; There will be live entertainment to include Irish dancing, karate demonstrations, children’s choirs, music by Joy FM 93.3’s Benji Shephard and a Little Miss Ice Cream Beauty Contest and Little Mister Ice Cream Cutey Contest.
Cost per entry for the contest is $10 and participants will be judged based on their answer to one question.
All proceeds benefit the Emmaus Women’s Shelter, which provides refuge and restoration for homeless women and their families.
David said the event will provide a way for all age groups to contribute to worthy cause.
“Children can bring their piggy banks because quarters add up. Even children can help make a difference,” said David.
