PGA National Announces Attempt to Build World’s Longest Ice Cream Sundae
I just got word that there is a fun festival in Palm Beach Gardens in a couple of weeks and wanted to share it with my local South Florida readers.
PGA National Resort & Spa will host its “Ice Cream Festival Weekend” (Aug. 16 – 18) highlighted by an attempt to build the “World’s Longest Ice Cream Sundae” of more than 1,200 ft. and enter the Guinness Book of World Records.
With a packed weekend of ice cream related activities the attempt at the world record will occur Sunday during the “Luke’s Ice Cream Sweet Sundae Fun Day” held in the PGA Ballroom from 11:00 a.m. (registration) – 4 p.m. The cost is $30 in advance per family or $35 at the door and includes a sundae building kit (two adults / two children, proof required). Additional fun activities include a petting zoo, trains, face-painting and bounce houses.
A portion of the proceeds benefits the Alliance for Kids – a non-profit organization whose direct purpose is to provide funding and programs for the Child Life Department at the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital.
Child Life Specialists prepare patients for and distract them during procedures, offer coping skills and give patients and their families the tools to make their experience a positive one. The Child Life Team manages visiting groups, volunteers and donations for the children’s hospital. To normalize the hospital environment, the team schedules special events and activities during the week.
“It’s going to be great fun here at PGA National as we attempt to build the world’s longest ice cream sundae and, best of all, families get to enjoy eating the results,” says Joel Paige, Vice President and Managing Director. “Even more important is the benefit to the Alliance for Kids and its wonderful work at the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital.”
PGA National is additionally offering a two day / one night “Ice Cream Festival Weekend Package” on Saturday, Aug. 17 for $189 (subject to resort fee, taxes where applicable). It includes accommodations; two tickets to Saturday night’s “Sock Hop BBQ”; two tickets to the Saturday’s “Big Taste-Sweet Tweet”; access to the “Golf Kart Drive-in Movie” (one cart); and family admission to “Luke’s Ice Cream Sweet Sundae Fun Day.”
