March offers a couple of opportunities to do good deeds and treat yourself at the same time:
Think pink for frozen yogurt
A new, self-serve frozen yogurt shop in Mesa will donate 20 percent of all sales on Thursday, March 3, to The Breast Cancer Society, Inc.
SDFY: What’s the Skinny? (Seriously Delicious Frozen Yogurt) is located at 2023 W Guadalupe Rd #14, on the southwest corner of Dobson and Guadalupe. It offers eight different yogurt flavors, with more than 40 different toppings, including fresh fruit.
The event will go on all day during regular business hours of 11am to 9pm. SDFY will serve all of its pink/red-colored yogurts (pomegranate, pink cotton candy, peppermint, red velvet cake, cherry, and strawberry) that day and also will offer pink bracelets for a $1 donation to The Breast Cancer Society. Educational materials regarding breast cancer will be handed out to all the customers.
The Phoenix Suns Wives organization has teamed up with Cold Stone Creamery to host their annual book drive. Fans that bring two or more new or gently used children’s or young adult books to any of the 50 Cold Stone Creamery locations Valleywide through March 10 will receive a complimentary Like It Creation™ with one mix-in.
The book drive will culminate at US Airways Center when the Suns take on the Orlando Magic on Sunday, March 13. Fans who bring a book donation to the game will receive one raffle ticket per book donated. Winners will receive one of five raffle prizes that will be given away at the end of the game. Members of the Suns Wives will be collecting books at each entrance of the arena. The game will tip-off at 12:30 p.m., with doors opening at 11 a.m.
Each prize package will represent a Suns star and feature an autographed jersey, a chance to meet a Suns player and a Cold Stone Creamery gift card.
The Suns Wives organization is comprised of the significant others of the players, coaches, basketball operations staff and senior management. The Suns Wives strive to make a difference in the lives of families and children by volunteering time, energy and resources to various charitable organizations throughout the Valley.
