Mark your calendars: Frozen yogurt shop’s Sept. 29 opening will benefit Kosair Charities

I love fundraisers disguised as food events. They combine two of my passions – charity and good eats.

One such occasion will take place this week at 32°, A Yogurt Bar, a frozen yogurt shop that will host its Louisville grand opening from 5 – 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 29, at The Summit.

Guests at the celebration can help themselves to a cup of all-you-care-to-eat frozen yogurt and toppings for a $5 donation. 32° will give all proceeds from the event to Kosair Children’s Hospital, according to a news release from the company.

This is 32°’s first location outside of Alabama, where the chain began. The yogurt bar is located between Starbucks and AT&T in The Summit. The Louisville shop will offer 14 daily flavors, which include gluten-free and kosher selections, and more than 50 toppings. The Summit is a bit of a journey from my hood, but some fro-yo sure is tempting.
