This is where I will be on July 4th.

If you happen to be in the vicinity of Philadelphia, take some time on July 4th to stop by Twistee Treat and help support our troops! 

A Real Treat for Injured Marines:

Philadelphia – The Twistee Treat ice cream and water ice store at Frankford and Longshore avenues will donate 100 percent of its July 4 earnings to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund.

The store, owned by Paul and Linda Corbett, parents of two Marines and eight other children, is small but hard to miss -it’s shaped like a big ice cream cone and is known to Mayfair locals as “The Cone.” Mr. and Mrs. Corbett decided last year to support the fund after Mr. Corbett heard about it on the radio.In addition to donating all proceeds from this Independence Day, Twistee Treat will also collect donations for the fund.

Also, all active duty and reserve military personnel who visit the shop will receive a free large ice cream, water ice or sundae. “What we are doing is a drop in the bucket compared to what the need is,” said Mr. Corbett of Twistee Treat’s donation and fundraising efforts.”They serve us every day,” Mrs. Corbett said of servicemen. “What we are doing is very small and insignificant compared to what they do for us.”

Twistee Treat is located at 6900 Frankford Avenue and is open from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It is open from 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Sunday.
