Wilfredo - Serving Bucktown Ice Cream for 42 years

Wilfredo is a Bucktown institution who has been selling soft serve ice cream out of his truck in the neighborhood for 42 years!  He has NEVER changed the cost of the cone -- it is always just $1.   How many things in life can you still buy today that bring so much joy for just $1!  He has brought joy to thousands of kids and adults in the neighborhood and he could use your help. 

Unfortunately his ice cream truck needs a new generator which will cost $5000.  If they don't get this new generator then the ice cream truck will eventually no longer function.

It would be great if we can all pitch in -- even a couple of dollars each to help cover the cost.  Think of all the dollars that the Bucktown community has saved during the past 40 years by only having to spend $1 a cone!

Thanks in advance for your generosity
