Nearly 1,800 guests wild for ice cream migrated to the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium Aug. 11. It was the 19th annual Ice Cream Fundae to benefit Pressley Ridge and featured a special appearance by Mr. McFeely (aka David Newell) of "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood." Hagan Ice Cream donated the sweet treat with nine corporate sponsors and organizations concocting new flavors. Federal Home Loan's Jolly Roger Raspberry and Partlow Insurance's Sweet N' Steady Cheesecake were among the palette pleasers. The volunteers from corporations including Huntington National Bank, Highmark, PNC Bank and Mass Mutual served more than 350 gallons of ice cream in various spots throughout the zoo. VIPs enjoyed a buffet dinner in the garden tent before heading off to track down their dessert. Among those getting a real scoop with sprinkles while helping to raise more than $100,000 were Bill Wycoff, Shauna Nuzzo, Doug Mullins, Leah Kaplan and Chris Amar.
