We held our annual ice cream sundae competition, Sweet Creations for Sweet Donations, at our corporate office on June 18th. Eight nonprofit organizations each partnered with a store manager to create a special ice cream sundae for the competition. A panel of five judges determined that the Children’s Harbor sundae was the winner. Taking home first-place, Children’s Harbor received a donation of $1,500 from Hoffman’s Chocolates.
Hoffman’s Sweet Ride served complimentary ice cream to the runners and walkers at the 2019 Walk Like MADD and MADD Dash. Over 350 scoops were served. What better way to start the day then with a scoop of Stellar Coffee ice cream or end the race with a refreshing Rainbow Sherbet.
This was an opportunity for BBX Capital Foundation, Hoffman’s Chocolates, and the Department of Writing and Communication in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences of Nova Southeastern University to collaborate on an experiential experience for students. With BBX Capital underwriting the curriculum and Hoffman’s donating all of the product, current NSU undergraduate Communication students created chocolate-retail product mockups over the course of an eight-week course. The class gave students the time to generate a proposed chocolate product, create visual design elements, and strategize promotional campaigns with depth and nuance. It also gave students, keen on translating their communication knowledge into practical experiences, an incredible opportunity to share their talents in the real world
Hoffman’s Chocolates Sweet Ride provided complimentary ice cream to the guests attending the Pineapple Jam at Stranahan House: A Party in Paradise for Preservation benefiting the Historic Stranahan House Museum. All proceeds support the historic preservation and education programs at the Historic Stranahan House Museum
Besides the tradition flavors; Chocolate and Vanilla, Hoffman’s provided a Hawaiian Fruit Cup and Lemon Sorbet.
