Every Friday Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series called Foodie Friday.
The Drake House is a Roswell-based charity that provides transitional housing to homeless women and their families. I wrote about them in more detail in this space two years ago. If you’re not familiar with their work and mission then I encourage you to take a few minutes and read their website at thedrakehouse.org.
Miss Mary’s Ice Cream Crankin’ is the Drake House’s premier fundraising event. Volunteers from the business and faith communities make some amazing homemade ice cream and offer samples. For only $6 you’ll get as much as you care to eat. They’ve also got a handful of other contests for the kids.
The event starts at 2:00 but I always suggest folks get there early. The samples go fast. It also melts quickly in the hot August sun.
Here are the details:
