The 35th annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl, presented by Valvoline Instant Oil Change, was the most successful to date, raising more than $500,000 for the Jimmy Fund, which supports adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

More than 45,000 New Englanders congregated in downtown Boston at Government Center June 6-8 to sample dozens of ice cream flavors.

“We had so much fun at The Scooper Bowl this year. The Jimmy Fund is a great organization,” said Don Smith, CEO of Valvoline Instant Oil Change franchisee, Henley Enterprises. “Our team confirmed Valvoline Instant Oil Change is more than a fast oil change. We can scoop ice cream even faster!”

Valvoline Instant Oil Change will be teaming up with the Jimmy Fund again July 24 to September 23 to participate in their A Chance for Kids and Families promotion. Scratch cards will be sold at participating store locations for $1 with all proceeds going directly to Dana-Farber.
