Press Release: Rock n’ Roll with Pressley Ridge

Rock n' Roll Ice Cream SundayPITTSBURGH – Reminisce once again “about the days of old, with that old time a- rock ‘n’ roll” as Pressley Ridge celebrates its Rock n’ Roll Ice Cream Sunday from Noon until 4 PM on August 21, Marshall Avenue Campus, North Side.

It’s an afternoon of “All-The-Ice-Cream-You-Can-Eat” old-fashioned fun providing continuous games and entertainment for families and children. There will be a petting zoo, pony rides, clowns, mimes and face painting for the children. Also friends from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood including Mr. McFeely, Joe Negri, X the Owl, King Friday and Purple Panda will be there.

This year Johnny Angel and the Halos will have the crowd jumping and jiving to great ’50s classics, oldies and doo-wop. And the audience can get “All Shook Up” wearing “Blue Suede Shoes” listening to Pittsburgh’s own Don Obusek perform a tribute to the King of Rock ‘n Roll, Elvis Pressley.

In addition, music and dance performances will be provided by the Pittsburgh Banjo Club, the Stage 62 Players, Three Rivers Chorus and World of Children. The Pittsburgh Public Schools All-Star Marching Band and Mellon Financial Corporation’s “Bankers on Broadway” will also perform.

This unique annual fundraiser began in Pittsburgh in 1993, to benefit Pressley Ridge’s Second Family, Second Chance Fund. Pressley Ridge is an innovative leader in the treatment of troubled children serving families and children in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, DC.

What makes this event unique is corporate ice-cream teams create and name original ice-cream flavors with the assistance of Reinholds, a 100 year old, Pittsburgh-based, family-owned ice-cream company. All flavors are entered into a judged competition, with the winner taking possession of The Silver Scoop Trophy, to display in its headquarters until the next Ice Cream Sunday. The winning flavor has a chance to be produced and packaged by Reinholds and mass marketed in the Pittsburgh area under the winning team’s name.

This years corporate teams include: Aetna – Blue Berets, Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh
Federated Investors – Oakland Catholic High School, LAMAR Advertising/LAMAR, Mellon Financial Corporation, National City, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, PNC, PPG Industries, Reed Smith and WQED Multimedia & Family Communications.

Individual tickets are $6 each and group tickets are $20 for 4 people. Free parking will be available at Heinz Field and a complimentary shuttle service to and from the Ice Cream Sunday will also be available.
