Thank you so much to all that came out to visit Gelato Fiasco in Brunswick on Wednesday, April 29 to help support Brunswick-area youth at the annual Teen Center Scoop-a-thon event! More than 1000 people participated and we raised over $5500!!! Gelato Fiasco said it was their busiest event ever and their largest contribution ever! They estimate that on average, one dish of gelato, pint of gelato, or cup of coffee was served every 40 seconds for the entire 12-hour day!!
