Clementine’s Creamery Launches New Ice Cream Flavor with Andy Cohen to Benefit DOORWAYS
‘Peppermint Andy’ will be available in all scoop shops November 1 and available for nationwide shipping November 3
Clementine’s Creamery is proud to announce the launch of “Peppermint Andy,” a new flavor created together with St. Louis’s own Andy Cohen. Clementine’s will be donating 50% of sales of the peppermint-chocolate flavor to local non-profit organization DOORWAYS. The new flavor is available in scoop shops November 1 and will be available for online ordering on November 3.
“Andy Cohen has been a steadfast DOORWAYS supporter and friend for many, many years,” said Opal Jones, President and CEO of DOORWAYS. “It’s wonderful to see Clementine’s honor him with this new ice cream! Peppermint is known as both a remedy and a delightful essence—two characteristics among Andy’s many traits. He helps improve the lives of people in need—such as our DOORWAYS clients—through his generous and kind spirit.”
“My Mom has been heavily involved with DOORWAYS since I came out of the closet in 1989, and I love supporting them any chance I can get,” added Cohen. For more information, www.doorwayshousing.org.
“We are honored to partner with Andy and DOORWAYS on this special flavor,” said Tamara Keefe, CEO and Flavor Temptress for Clementine’s Creamery. “What a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season with a delicious new ice cream that will also benefit a most worthy organization in our community.” The flavor consists of Clementine’s dairy base, crushed New York’s King Leo Peppermint candies, decadent dark chocolate curls and a hint of vanilla.

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS GO ‘ALL IN’ ON #ALLWIN CAMPAIGN, RAISE $97K TO HELP MOST VULNERABLE
With support from fans, teammates, pitcher Adam Wainwright leads team effort
to raise funds for four charities hand-selected by him and his teammates
Through this year’s #ALLWIN St. Louis campaign — led by St. Louis Cardinals pitcher and Big League Impact founder Adam Wainwright — St. Louis Cardinals players and their fans raised a combined $97,769 to help those in need.
Wainwright and his teammates hoped to raise at least $80,000 by pledging a donation for every win during the Cardinals’ 2021 regular season and encouraging St. Louis baseball lovers to do the same.
The money will be divided among four worthy charities that were hand-selected by participating Cardinals players to support causes that are close to their hearts, including:
Crisis Aid Community Outreach Program, selected by pitcher Adam Wainwright
St. Louis Public Schools Foundation, selected by infielder Tommy Edman
Food for the Hungry, selected by first baseman Paul Goldschmidt
Crisis Aid Women’s Shelter, selected by pitcher Miles Mikolas
The team’s total was boosted by an extra campaign by Mikolas, who pledged a separate donation of $200 per strikeout. He finished with 31 in an abbreviated season and will donate an additional $6,200 to programs at the Crisis Aid Women’s Shelter that support victims of human trafficking.
“It’s so special to get to see the cause each player chooses and to get to understand a little better what matters most to them and their families,” Wainwright says. “I’m honored that so many of my teammates were willing to go all in on this #ALLWIN campaign, and look forward to seeing the ways these awesome organizations put this money to work in the communities they serve.”
Big League Impact was founded by Wainwright and his brother in 2013 to combine their love of fantasy football with a passion for giving back. Since then, the organization has grown considerably, but its mission remains the same: to fight poverty through the platform of sports.
Big League Impact hosted similar fundraising campaigns this season with players from the Texas Rangers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Philadelphia Phillies, raising a combined $288,614.50 for player-selected charities providing food, clean water, a safe space for children, teens, and victims of domestic violence, and much more. More than $13,000 of that total was raised by baseball fans from across the country.
“What’s great about a campaign like #ALLWIN is that it truly is an opportunity for players and fans alike to be part of something bigger than themselves,” says Keith Brooks, executive director of Big League Impact. “Whether you donated $1 per win or $100 per win, by being part of this fundraising effort, your giving will make a bigger impact than any one of us could make on our own.”
Big League Impact, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that partners with professional athletes through unique, sports-related fundraising platforms to help people meet basic human needs like food, clean water, medical care, shelter, and education in an effort to save lives, restore dignity, and instill hope. Started by St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright in 2013 as a fantasy football fundraiser, Big League Impact has grown from coast-to-coast, working with 80 MLB players, and raising more than $5.8 million for causes around the world.
