Hollis Doherty must have loved ice cream as he now has a flavor named after him at Splurge, the ice cream shop at The Orchard in Phoenix. Hope Through Hollis Mint Chip Ice Cream is named after the 7-year-old whose legacy lives on after Hollis passed away in January from a brain tumor.
Friday September 29th – October 1st Splurge will be donating all sales of the ice cream to the Hope Through Hollis organization his parents Shane and Shawnee started to raise money for this rare disease’s research.
Hope Through Hollis has partnered with TGen to help find the cure for the Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) tumor. The money raised through the sales of Hope Through Hollis Mint Chip will be used to fund research for the cure where the average life span is 1 year after diagnosis. Hollis passed away after 9 months of fighting.

After next weekends fundraiser Splurge will continue to serve the mint chip ice cream and donate a portion to sales to the organization.
Splurge is open 7 days a week from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. and is at 7100 N. 12th St. Phoenix http://splurgephx.com
