Pretty soon, East Texas ice cream lovers will have a new place to go for a cool treat. The Marble Slab Creamery opens in Lufkin in just two days.
You're invited to opening day, Thursday, August 25th. It'll start at 11:00 a.m. and last until 10:00 p.m. The creamery is nearly 1,000 square feet and sits on Tulane Drive.
All proceeds from Thursday's opening will go toward medical expenses for Jonathan Carrington. The eight-year-old boy had an aneurysm at birth. He also has cerebral palsy and a history of other medical problems.
The grand opening celebration will be held at a later date.
