    The Tugboat Inn & Restaurant, Commercial Street, Boothbay Harbor is pleased to announce that the Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause ice cream truck will be at the restaurant on Windjammer Day, Wednesday, June 26 between 4 and 8 p.m.

    Tugboat Inn in conjunction with Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause will be raising money for the Lafayette Family Cancer Center in Bangor. Lafayette Hotels owns and operates Tugboat Inn, Fisherman’s Wharf Inn and the Boothbay Harbor Inn, as well as several other hotels in Maine and New Hampshire.

    The Lafayette family has been instrumental in the building of the facility, and the individual hotels all host fundraisers throughout the year in support of the center.

    Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause was designed as a fun way to give back to local communities and causes. The truck attends local events to give out ice cream for free in exchange for voluntary donations to benefit the cause or charity.

    In 2012, the truck raised over $20,000 for over 100 local causes.

    The truck is available for any event or cause, from large organizations to a friend or neighbor in need.
