Nothing calls for ice cream more than a hot steamy day with temperatures in the mid-80s. And last weekend representatives with the Winston-Salem Dash did their part to provide frozen treats for children and families in the community. 

On Saturday, May 16, while accompanied by officers with the Winston-Salem Police Department and Winston-Salem Fire Department, Bolt, the team’s mascot, characters from Nickelodeon’s Paw Patrol, and members of the Dash staff made surprise ice cream deliveries to children in the East Winston community. 

While still managing to keep social distancing orders, the band of volunteers started their journey at 14th Street Community Center and continued onto N. Cleveland Avenue, East 15th and 17th Streets, and North Jackson Avenue, before returning to the community center. 

As the caravan made its way up Jackson Avenue, dozens of people came out of  their homes to see what was going on. While many were delighted to receive the free frozen treat, others came out just to thank the Dash and others for putting on the event. A similar event was held earlier in the week in the neighborhoods surrounding BB&T Ballpark. According to team officials, the neighborhoods were selected through an online nomination process. 

The Winston-Salem Dash are the Class-A Advanced Minor League affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. For more information, please call 336-714-2287.
