NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - Tasti D-Lite/Planet Smoothie will host a “Sweet Rewards” celebration next month to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle’s “Career Launch” Program.
On Saturday, June 1 Tasti D-Lite/Planet Smoothie owner, Bill Warshaw will share the secrets of his entrepreneurial success with the kids in attendance, show how the frozen treats are made and unveil a limited edition Tasti D-Lite flavor to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle’s Annual “It Just Takes One” campaign.
“I’m a part of the community so it only makes sense to support the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle," Warshaw said in a statement. "I was fortunate to take a tour of the organization’s Mascaro Clubhouse and witnessed firsthand the impact they have on kids each day. As a result I want to do something fun that will raise awareness and money for the organization.”
Sales of the limited edition Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle flavor, whose name will be revealed during the June 1 event, will support the club's general operations and programs.
“We are blessed to have supporters like Mr. Warshaw and Tasti D-Lite/Planet Smoothie," said Quay Watkins, Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle executive director. "Opening his store to our kids provides them the opportunity to consider a career they might not have otherwise envisioned. And his generous personal donation to our Annual Campaign enables us to continue our work within the community. Bills’ innovative idea of a limited edition Tasti D-Lite flavor to promote our mission and message is so appreciated."
The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the shop, located in the Wykagyl Shopping Center at 1282 North Ave.
