Making scary ice cream at the Gilda Club in Seattle.

Ok so one of our moments of giving back is making ice cream for men, women and children living with cancer. This last Halloween was our second year doing this and we always have a great time.
Gilda Club;
Named in honor of Gilda Radner, provides meeting places where men, women and children living with cancer and their families and friends join with others to build emotional, social and educational support as a supplement to medical care. Free of charge and nonprofit, they offer support and networking groups, lectures, workshops and social events in a nonresidential, homelike setting.

Each Halloween, the Gilda Club holds a Noogiefest Halloween Party. So Ward and I donate our time and supplies and we pack up our G4 machine, ice cream mix and goodies, and we drive 175 miles over the Cascade Mountains from Wenatchee to Seattle so that we can make ice cream for everybody at the party. It's a cool event, and we have a good time doing it. The children and adults dress up, they have food, games, activities, and a little haunted area. Afterwards Ward and I grab a bit for dinner around 10 pm and then we usually get back home around one or two in the morning.
I did get a parking ticket this last time because I didn't realize I was in a paid parking spot... Anyway, I called to ask if they would waive the fee since I was doing this event for charity. They dropped the ticket to $5.. that was fair I thought...:) Thanks!

This last Halloween we made Oreo ice cream using the orange Halloween Oreos.

This is Rob in action.
