Jack Nicklaus Ice Cream Adds New Varieties
Proceeds from ice cream sales benefit the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation
One year after the successful launch of an affordable ice cream that puts smiles on children’s faces, golf icon Jack Nicklaus and the subsidiaries of The Schwan Food Company (collectively “Schwan”), have teamed up with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® (CMN Hospitals) to make those smiles a little bigger. Jack Nicklaus Ice Cream is celebrating its first year with a commitment to contribute to this national non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. The ice cream brand was already a proud supporter of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.
As the charitable support of Jack Nicklaus Ice Cream expands after year one, so does its offering of flavors, as the line will expand from seven to 14 flavors in 2016. In addition, the retail distribution of the ice cream will expand to new markets nationwide.
“I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve done together with Schwan over the past year,” Jack Nicklaus said. “My wife Barbara and I have a passion for philanthropy and, especially, supporting pediatric care through our work in South Florida and nationally with our Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. Our family has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with CMN Hospitals in recent years, and because Schwan shares our passion for helping children, together we now look forward to advancing the mission of CMN Hospitals nationwide through the sales of our ice cream.
