Island-Themed Truck to Give Away FREE Shaved Ice at Rita & Truett Smith Library to Help Community Chill Out on Tax Day
WHAT: With Tax Day right around the corner, many of us are reaching into our pockets to pay-off Uncle Sam. To relieve taxpayers of the stress associated with meeting the federal deadline, Kona Ice will be hosting its fourth annual National Chill Out Day.
The island-inspired truck will be parked at  Rita & Truett Smith Library in Wylie to hand out FREE cups of tropical shaved ice and complimentary Hawaiian leis to all who stop by. The refreshing treat will ensure that there is no taxation without relaxation this tax season.
The event is open to the public and media cameras. Interviews with the owner and staff will be available onsite.
WHY:National Chill Out Day is one of the many ways Kona Ice is encouraging the nation to take a step back, relax and enjoy a Kona. National Chill Out Day is one small, yet powerful, way the brand hopes to put a smile on peoples faces. Through partnerships with schools, youth sports leagues and other neighborhood organizations, Kona Ice has given back more than $40 million to the communities it serves.
