SAN DIEGO–With a nod to the soda jerks of the 1930s, Barons Market brings back specialty soda ice cream floats for one day this summer to benefit two local charities.
A locally owned grocery store, Barons Market is inviting families to its Sweet Summer Social on June 22 from noon to 4 p.m. at its locations in Point Loma, Rancho Bernardo, Temecula and Wildomar.
Ice cream floats are free for children 12 and younger and only $2 for their friends. Barons Market will donate all of the event’s proceeds to two local charities – The Boys and Girls Club of San Diego and the Boys and Girls Club of Southwest Riverside, which provide hope and opportunity for growth to disadvantaged youth.
“The silver soda fountain spigot may be a thing of the past, but Barons Market can still bring Southern California a Sweet Summer Social filled with family fun and tasty ice cream floats,” said Rachel Shemirani, marketing manager at Barons Market. “Plus, we get to celebrate the warm summer months by raising cool cash to help local charities.”
For the vanilla ice cream floats, each location will have four soda flavors available including classic flavors like Virgil’s Root Beer, Frostie’s Blue Cream Soda, Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Root Beer and Sprecker Orange Dream.
