Cowlicks partners to make memories | Community Spirit
As summer winds down, Cowlicks Yogurt and Floats continues to up the philanthropic ante with its Famous Floats series. Sue Rodman, a popular mom-centric writer at her eponymous blog, “Field Trips with Sue,” now teams up with the fro-yo favorite for the Memory Maker Float. Rodman’s custom creation is available through October 10 and benefits the Alzheimer’s Association.
The themed float fuses Cowlicks’ rich cake batter yogurt and nonfat cookies and cream yogurt with a splash of Barq’s root beer for the perfect concoction. Through October 10, 20 percent of all float sales will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The Alzheimer’s Association works nationally, as well as globally, to provide the best care and support for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The goal of the association is to accelerate the process of new treatments and ultimately find a cure.
“I’m very excited to work with Cowlicks Yogurt and Floats. Frozen treats are my favorite, and I love the charity angle” said Rodman. “Being able to enjoy a cool, fizzy float while supporting a worthy cause is so much fun. I know Atlanta-area families will enjoy this sweet philanthropic treat, too.”
Rodman, a mother of three boys, provides her readers with ideas and reviews on family-friendly activities in and around Atlanta. “Field Trips with Sue” is Nickelodeon Parent’s Pick winner and a Parents.com award nominee. Rodman is also a contributing writer for several travel-focused outlets.
“As a parent, I have been a reader of ‘Field Trips with Sue’ for some time,” said Cowlicks owner Daryl Dollinger. “Many of our customers are also avid fans, so we are thrilled to bring Sue to the Cowlicks community. We always see a positive response during out Famous Floats series, and we’re excited to continue giving back.”
Cowlicks will offer the Memory Maker at the Sandy Springs and Vinings locations through October 10. Cowlicks Yogurt and Floats in Sandy Springs is located at 1100 Hammond Drive in the Publix Perimeter shopping center. Cowlicks Yogurt and Floats in Vinings is located at 2460 Cumberland Parkway at the corner of Paces Ferry Road and Cumberland Parkway.
