Unilever recently donated several boxes of assorted ice cream bars as part of Tipton Christian Academy’s annual spaghetti dinner and auction, which took place March 15.
Ice Cream Day at TCA was Tuesday, April 22, and five-year-old Maci Phillips was its princess of Ice Cream Day, her family having made the highest bid at the auction.
Dressed in a pink and aqua glittering crown and complementing sash, Maci delivered popsicles, Klondike bars and Strawberry Shortcake bars to each class during snack time.
Lisa Blalack, TCA director, said the TCA children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the treat. “What fun it was to celebrate with our ice cream princess, Maci Phillips,” said Blalack. “Thanks to Unilever, Maci gave every student, teacher and staff member at TCA ice cream joy!”
Larry Gibson, operating manager of Unilever, was pleased with the school’s delight. “Unilever is a proud member of the Covington community and happy to support great causes to help all of us live better, healthier, more sustainable lives. Education of our children is a key to a bright future for all.”
The spaghetti dinner fundraiser, in its fourth year and led by PTO president Pam Sanders, netted more than $27,000 for the school. The monies have been earmarked for educational items, such as new computers, and continued expansion of the private school.
