Moo Moo’s Creamery held its first annual World’s Best Free Ice Cream for a Year raffle earlier this month. With any purchase of a one-scoop cup or cone, customers received a raffle ticket. On Sunday, July 15, Moo Moo’s drew the winning numbers. Prizes included five free t-shirts, five free $10 gift cards, and the grand prize of a year’s worth of free Moo Moo’s ice cream.

Moo Moo’s, where long lines have been spotted throughout this hot summer, was happy to congratulate Charles and Stephanie Gallagher, the grand-prize winners. The Gallaghers also had a winning ticket for a free t-shirt. The odds of having two winning tickets were “over one in a million,” according to Moo Moo’s owner Alexi Katsetos.

The Gallaghers were very thankful for having won the grand prize, and they expressed the wish that they would like to donate the prize back. Therefore, Moo Moo’s Creamery thought it would be a great idea to have a poem-writing contest to decide who gets the still-available grand prize.

From now until Aug. 19, Moo Moo’s will be accepting poems from all ages. Poems can be sent to moomooscreamery@gmail.com, or just bring a printed copy into the store. The theme of the poem is simply ice cream and Moo Moo’s. There is no restriction on the length, but short and sweet, says Katsetos, would be appreciated. He adds that the number-one criteria Moo Moo’s is looking for is creativity.

The winner will be announced on Sunday, Aug. 19 and will receive the grand prize of free Moo Moo’s for a year. He or she will also have their poem painted on the wall in Moo Moo’s Creamery.
