The Ceres Chamber of Commerce will be celebrating the opening of a new local business, Cold Stone Creamery Mobile Service with a ribbon cutting and fundraiser on Monday, June 9 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Cold Stone Creamery Mobile Service is owned by Modesto Cold Stone Creamery owners Kumar and Rani Ahluwalia. The mobile service is an enclosed trailer featuring cold storage freezers, sink and snow cone equipment that will be used for catered events, parties and fundraisers like the one slated for next week.
The owners are teaming with Project YES of the Ceres Unified School District to raise money for the program that provides high school seniors and young individuals up to age 21 with employment placement, interview clothing, job training and college assistance.
"We are so excited to welcome this new business to Ceres and the surrounding communities," said Ceres Chamber Office Manager Dovie Wilson. "Kumar and Rani are already valued business owners in Ceres, so we want to do everything we can to help them succeed in their newest venture."
Aside from owning the Cold Stone Creamery at Vintage Faire Mall, the Ahluwalia's also own Ceres Dry Cleaning located in downtown Ceres.
The Ceres fundraiser will be held in the Project YES parking lot located at 2491 Lawrence Street. Ice cream cups may be purchased for $3 per cup with half of all proceeds benefitting Project YES. Drawings and prizes will also be awarded during the event.
