Grater's Cones for the Cure a benefit for The Cure Starts Now

Cones for the Cure will return Sept 7-17th, 2023

Thank you, Graeter's for raising $250,000 in 2022 — $1.675 MILLION to-date!

Inspired by the story of Elena Desserich, Graeter's formed a partnership with The Cure Starts Now – the international charity originally founded in her honor – to help raise awareness and much needed funding for pediatric cancer research. Since teaming up in 2009, Graeter's, with the help of supporters like you, has raised $1,500,000+ with the Cones for the Cure event.

About The Cure Starts Now:
The Cure Starts Now represents something truly different – a grassroots effort dedicated to, not just fighting one cancer, but the elimination of ALL cancers.

Elena's Blueberry Pie

In 2008, in support of The Cure Starts Now, Graeter’s ice cream auctioned off a once in a lifetime chance to create your own flavor. The winners of the auction worked with Graeter's to help develop a flavor to honor Elena Desserich, the inspiration for The Cure Starts Now. Now a Limited Edition seasonal flavor, Elena's Blueberry Pie honors the memories of all young lives affected by pediatric cancer and supports The Cure Starts Now's mission to find the Homerun Cure for all cancers.
