PORTLAND, Maine — The Opportunity Alliance, a non-profit organization serving Cumberland County, will hold a fundraiser at The Gelato Fiasco to support their Keep ME Warm fund for emergency home heating oil assistance in Cumberland County. Come by either Gelato Fiasco location (Maine St., Brunswick, or Fore St. in Portland’s Old Port) and mention The Opportunity Alliance, and 100 percent of your purchase before taxes will be donated back to help those struggling to stay warm this winter. Donations will be made on sales of dishes of gelato, Create-a-Pints, fancy desserts, teas and coffee drinks, Drinking Chocolate and Mystery Pints. Live musical entertainment will be featured in both stores. Stop by The Gelato Fiasco between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. Wednesday, January 16, to cool your tongue and warm your heart as you do something good for neighbors in need.
