On October 6th from 11 a.m. to midnight Yogorino, at both their Philly locations at 233 S. 20th and 1205 Walnut, will be donating half of their profits and tips to Steppingstone Scholars. Steppingstone is an organization that helps educationally underserved students in the area by preparing them for admission to preparatory schools and creating opportunities for students to go to college.
If you needed an excuse to indulge in a little fro-yo, this would be a good time to gorge for a cause!
