Cheap ice cream raises money for fallen firefighters

People lined up outside Baskin Robbin stores across the country ready to buy up to 3 scoops of ice cream for 31 cents each. Baskin Robbins locations across the country sponsored the 4th annual Be a Hero night.
According to the company's web-site, the organization donated over $100,000 to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Participating locations allowed patrons to donate their savings to the foundation which services survivors of America's fallen firefighters.
A steady line was kept outside of the store from 5pm until the store closed at 10pm. As the line moved, people joked about the ice cream tasting better because of the inexpessive price.
"It was outrageously busy tonight," said Carrie, a student who worked the event. She didn't mind the extra work, but needs to recover quickly in order to take her TAKS test in the morning.
