Pickles and Ice Cream Social raises thousands for local foster kids

(WEAU) - A special fundraiser raised money for foster kids around the area Thursday night.

Hundreds of people came out for the Pickles and Ice Cream Social at Action City in Eau Claire, and WEAU 13 News is a proud sponsor.

The event was the creation of WEAU’s Sarah Stokes, who was searching for a way to help foster kids. The social featured silent auction items, seminars just for the ladies, door prizes, "mocktails", and spa treatments.

Stokes said Thursday night “It's just a fun lady's event, just a way to get out and mingle and socialize and shop and pamper ourselves but help kids at the same time.”

The social raised more than $4,000 and all the proceeds from the ice cream social go to "Fostering the Future Fund", managed by Lutheran Social Services.
