United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley and Kirke’s Homemade Ice Cream are pairing up for the “Celebrity Scoopers” fundraiser.

Local celebrities from around the Ohio Valley are volunteering their time to scoop ice cream at Kirke’s Homemade Ice Cream in St. Clairsville, OH, on July 19th, 2oth,  and 22nd, 2023 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

This is the third year that we have held a Celebrity Scoopers at Kirke’s, and we cannot thank him enough for his support and generosity!

Celebrity Scoopers include local officials, law enforcement, media, and business professionals.  Not just the proceeds, but all of the sales will be donated to the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley.

“We’re happy to help,” says Kirke Porterfield, owner of Kirke’s Homemade Ice Cream.  “It’s a great cause that helps many people in Belmont County.”
