Splurge at The Orchard is proud to introduce the Hope Through Hollis Mint Chip Ice Cream! Friday, September 29 to Sunday, October 1, Splurge at The Orchard will donate 100% of the sales made from the Hope Through Hollis Mint Chip Ice Cream to the Hope Through Hollis organization.  

Hollis Doherty was a 7-year-old Phoenix boy diagnosed with a tumor on his brain stem called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Hollis passed away in January of this year. Hollis' parents, Shane and Shawnee Doherty, continue to honor their son’s legacy to raise money in order to fund research for this devastatingly rare disease. To do this, Hope Through Hollis has partnered with TGen, a non-profit organization focused on developing earlier diagnostics and smarter treatments. 

After the fundraiser at Splurge at The Orchard, a portion of all Hope Through Hollis Mint Chip Ice Cream sales will continue to be donated to Hope Through Hollis.
