Cranston's own Mayor Allan W. Fung took on a new job last night as an ice cream scooper at the Chapel View Cold Stone Creamery.
It was part of a month-long fundraising celebration put on by Cold Stone Creamery locations to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Throughout September, the ice cream shops are selling paper wish stars for $1 each. It all lead up to what was billed as "the World's Largest Ice Cream Social" on Sept. 27.
Cold Stone Creamery locations gave away three-ounce samples of "Sprinkled with Wishes," an ice cream sundae with moist brownie, rainbow sprinkles and fudge along with an encouragment for visitors to make a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Fung was a "Celebrity Scooper" for the event.
