Purple Door scoops up sisterhood at Mount Mary
Ice cream social for new University president a berry big success
The company donated two flavors for the event, vanilla and its signature flavor, Mount Mary Berry.
Both Mount Mary University and Purple Door Ice Cream are actively involved in the Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corp. (WWBIC). Purple Door is a WWBIC client, while WWBIC leaders are regularly involved in classroom visits to Mount Mary, particularly with students in the field of dietetics.
The party was held after the All-University Workshop, a daylong update and in-service for members of the faculty, staff and administration. For most faculty members, it was their first day back on campus after summer break.
“There is so much excitement as we start this school year and welcome our new leader,” said Scott Rudie, senior director of communications. “There’s no better way to celebrate than to come together for premium ice cream in our very own flavor.”
Mount Mary Berry was first created for the University for an alumnae gathering in 2014. It is now among Purple Door’s rotation of favorite flavors.
