Ice Cream Named in Support of Muscular Dystrophy Association
by Valerie D’Angiolini ◊ Aug 19, 2011
I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to Kelly Stone of Kelly’s Kone Konnection, who so generously named two ice cream flavors for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to help promote the 2011 MDA Labor Day Telethon. This is the fourth consecutive year that Kelly’s Kone Konnection has named flavors to help MDA’s mission.
Members of the local community can now enjoy the special edition flavors, “Make a Mocha Chip Muscle” and “MDA Raising More Cookie Dough,” during the month of August at Kelly’s Kone Konnection, located at 2583 Whitney Ave. in Hamden.
Kelly’s Kone Konnection’s support in helping MDA promote the Telethon will increase viewership in the Hamden area, which will in turn help local families and individuals affected by neuromuscular disease.
The 2011 MDA Labor Day Telethon will broadcast during Labor Day Weekend on Sept. 4, from the Mohegan Sun Casino on Fox61 WTIC. Contributions to the Telethon will help fund diagnostic and follow-up care for people with muscular dystrophy, assistance with the purchase and repair of wheelchairs and leg braces, physical, occupational, and respiratory therapy consultations, assistance with the purchase of communication devices, medical and scientific conferences, and much more. Other services include support groups and MDA’s Annual Summer Camp for children with neuromuscular diseases.
MDA is a voluntary health agency dedicated to helping more than one million Americans affected by neuromuscular disorders through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive services, and far reaching professional and public health education.
Once again, thank you Kelly’s Kone Konnection for your support the last three years.
