Supporting The Community

image

Syracuse has been home to four generations of the Gannon family. Since the Gannon’s began serving ice cream, they’ve given back to the community that gave them their start. The Gannon’s take pride in supporting the City of Syracuse. In addition to the causes they partner with annually, check Facebook and Twitter for upcoming fundraisers and events at Gannon’s stores and in the community.

Tips for Tess

One week out of every year, scoopers donate their tips to help fight Cystic Fibrosis. It is the only week out of the year that you’ll be asked to tip well. The week begins with a Tips for Tess party at the Valley location and you’re invited! There’s a fantastic bubble show, face painting, live music, and caricatures by J.P. Crangle, the artist who created the beautiful murals! Come grab a tasty treat and help fight Cystic Fibrosis. Any money put in the tip jar will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Gannon’s will match the total amount donated, up to $1000. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system in children and adults and affects 30,000 people in the United States. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation funds more Cystic Fibrosis research than any other organization. They are a leader in the effort to find better treatments and improve the quality of life for those who live with the disease. The Tips for Tess week occurs each year around Father’s Day. Check Facebook and Twitter for updates. Thanks for helping Gannon’s support such a great cause. See you there!

Syracuse Youth Sports

Gannon’s has sponsored dozens of youth sports teams over the years. Each year, they proudly sponsor youth baseball, softball, and lacrosse teams located in the City of Syracuse and surrounding areas.

Charity for Children

Each year Gannon’s partners with the Charity for Children to support their annual Run/Walk. The Charity for Children help children and families in the Central New York area who are burdened with disease, disabilities, or disorders. Gannon’s is proud to support their efforts to bring happiness to all children in the area.
