Store marking 10 years on High Street in Morgantown

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Since January 2005, the Cold Stone Creamery on High Street in Morgantown has served more than 750,000 ice cream lovers. In honor of its 10th anniversary, the store is selling special cupcakes and holding a celebration to raise money for WVU Children’s Hospital at Ruby Memorial.

Allissondra Waldron, the 2014 Children’s Miracle Network Champion Child for West Virginia, modeled the design for “Alli’s ‘Frozen’ Cupcakes” after her favorite movie. The cupcakes can be purchased at the High Street Cold Stone Creamery and at the Friends Gift Shop at Ruby Memorial. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the cupcakes and general sales in the month of January at Cold Stone Creamery will go to WVU Children’s Hospital.

In addition, a day-long 10th anniversary celebration will be held at Cold Stone Creamery on Saturday, Jan. 24. Ten random customers will be selected throughout the day to win free ice cream for a year. Children’s tours will be conducted throughout the day, and celebrity scoopers will try their hand at mixing Cold Stone’s famous ice cream concoctions. From 2 to 5 p.m., Paige Madden, Miss West Virginia, will be the celebrity scooper and Waldron will be conducting the tours. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturdays.

“We have enjoyed a long-standing partnership with Cold Stone Creamery dating back to 2006. Through the generosity of the Cold Stone staff, our patients are able to celebrate our annual patio party, post-treatment parties, and their birthdays with ice cream treats,” Cheryl Jones, R.N., director of WVU Children’s Hospital, said. “We are grateful for Cold Stone’s support, and we look forward to continuing our work together long into the future.”
