      The Great Los Angeles Ice Cream Party

      Get involved
      This is a community event for all of Los Angeles, and we need your
      help. You can get involved by attending the event
      donating prizes to the opportunity drawing
      providing entertainment or activities at the event
      making a donation to Heritage Square Museum without attending the
      event by visiting www.justgive.org
      Inviting your family and friends to attend the event by sending them
      the details and asking them to attend with you.

      About
      The Great Los Angeles Ice Cream Party began humbly in 1997 as a way
      for young people to get together in a unique social setting. Ten
      years later, it has grown into one of the largest ice cream socials
      in the city. In the fourth year, the event started raising funds for
      causes - just a few dollars that teenagers could raise by donating a
      dollar or two. As the years past, the event became larger and more
      organized. By year 7, we were raising over a thousand dollars, and
      it was still geared to a young person who could donate a few
      dollars.

      Over the years, the Great Los Angeles Ice Cream Party hasn't raised
      millions of dollars, but we've allowed hundreds of young people the
      opportunity to gather to do something good for the community. We've
      supported youth programs, historical programs, and educational
      programs across Los Angeles, and the venues have varied from
      backyards and school halls to historic sites and museums. The Great
      Los Angeles Ice Cream Party isn't a production that costs thousands
      of dollars to put on; it's an event that takes something everyone
      loves - ice cream - and allows good works to come of such a
      gathering.

      Why an Ice Cream Party?
      So, why does the Great Los Angeles Ice Cream Party exist today in
      its current form?

      Young people from ages 13 to 30 are often encouraged to get
      involved, but there is rarely an opportunity for them to have the
      experience of donating their money to a cause. Often fundraising
      events are too expensive for them to attend or fundraising
      activities such as silent auctions price the young person out of
      participating. The Great Los Angeles Ice Cream Party provides an
      opportunity for young people (and older people, too!) to donate
      funds and participate at a moderate level. For a donation of 10 or
      20 dollars, a person can fully partake in the event, as no donation
      is required to have some ice cream and take part in the activities.
      This is an event that is geared to ALL AGES from families to young
      adults to senior citizens.

      And besides, who doesn't love ice cream?
