Our 2011 Holiday Fundraiser

Our 2011 Holiday Fundraiser will benefit ETCC.

The Edmondson-Telford Center provides services to Hall and Dawson County residents under the age of 18 who are victims of sexual or severe physical abuse or neglect, as well as their non-offending family members. We offer a safe environment for crisis intervention and medical advocacy as the victim moves through the examination and investigation steps. We also work with other local agencies to support the victim through the court process. It is our goal to assist agencies, also working on behalf of child victims, and provide information to ensure the child’s safety and begin the healing process.

The Center has served over 1,200 children and families since beginning in 1997. Edmondson-Telford has conducted over 500 forensic examination interviews of sexually abused victims and coordinated hundreds of child abuse investigations with law enforcement and social services agencies. All services are provided free-of-charge to victims and are provided to English and non-English speaking persons.

Through the compassionate, professional services provided by the Edmondson-Telford Center, the trauma experienced by victimized children can be significantly reduced. Also, law enforcement officials receive higher quality evidence for use in prosecution of their cases. Our multi-disciplinary approach to child abuse cases has proven critical in the successful prosecution of countless offenders and has increased the prosecution rates of child offenders in Hall and Dawson Counties.

Currently, the Edmondson-Telford Center for Children and Hall-Dawson CASA program are combining their resources to construct a new facility to co-locate these agencies and offer their combined services of assisting child victims. This new facility will centralize the services offered by both agencies, thus increasing victim’s access and offering a more compassionate, child-friendly and child-centered campus. The new facility, The Little House, will enable victims to rebuild their lives while in a caring, safe home environment. More information about our new building, The Little House, is available here.

Wednesday Weddings & Social Events

Today's Wednesday Wedding features Dale's & Blair's Wedding. Their wedding was at the gorgeous Lake Lanier Island Pineisle Point. The bride looked incredible and the evening was extraordinary. We served six yummy flavors to the lovely couple and their guests including Vanilla Bean, Milk Chocolate, Mocha, Butterscotch, Coconut and Keylime Pie. The Mocha was a hit!

The espresso beans flavor mixed with the Swiss dark chocolate is just "sinful".

Contact us for more information about our gelato offering for weddings and special events.

Tuesday Talk

Over the past several years, gelato has becoming a very popular frozen dessert across the world. Gelato has been enjoyed by the Italians for many, many years and only recently has gelato come to America. Frozen desserts like gelato and sorbet have become a major part of the American culture.

As a American visiting Rome several years ago, I reminisce on the time I spent visiting the ancient sites and enjoying my hazelnut and chocolate gelato. Delicious!!!!

Now it is your chance to enjoy our dreamy gelato and experience a taste of Italy.

Monday "Must Have"

The Monday "Must Have" for today is our pint size gelato. Cinnamon is my personal favorite today! What could be better than enjoying some dreamy gelato in our classic, Italian, boutique store.......enjoying dreamy gelato in your home anytime you want.

My personal favorite thing to do while enjoying delicious gelato is watching an action packed movie like The Rise of the Planet of the Apes. While Cinnamon gelato is a "must have" dessert and this movie is a "must see". The movie has great action, a wonderful store line. lots of emotions and ties perfectly back to the original movie.

Don't forget your pint of dreamy gelato before you head to the movies.

Giving Back - One Person At A Time

When I started Dreamy Gelato & Chocolates, I had grand ideas of how I was going to use my business to change the world. As many of you know, changing the world takes time. However, I have discovered that one can make a difference on a small level that can have a profound impact.

Here is an example of how one lady is making a difference. We were excited to be a part of her year long mission.

I found this "mouth-watering" image of baked Alaska while searching for delicious recipes. We are hard at work creating baked Alaska for one of our wholesale restaurants.

Just thinking about the different flavors of gelato and handmade cake recipes we will combine makes me full of excitement and anticipation.

Indian Wedding - Gelato Cart

A couple of months ago, we catered our first Indian wedding. It was a blast!

Over 300 guests were served gelato in 30 minutes; therefore, the photographer did not have time to capture the serving of the gelato. Unfortunate, but I was still able to obtain some images of the beautiful bride.

This was an Andre Winfrye Event. Click here for more images.

New Flavor: Banana Fosters

As a small artisan gelato shop, we don't have a team of scientists on staff to test millions of different ingredient combinations. Our creative customers and talented employees never cease to recommend amazing flavors.

Our banana foster gelato is courtesy of my mother-in-law. She was visiting in January and wanted something sweet. We only had bananas, leftover vanilla bean gelato and cinnamon so I decided to make banana foster with vanilla gelato. Before she ate a bite, she reminded me that she is not a fan of bananas. After her last bite, I reminded her that gelato makes everything taste so much better. At that moment, a new dreamy gelato flavor was created.

Our banana fosters gelato has been a hit in the store. It is super delicious with the dark chocolate gelato.

February Offer - Delicious Hot Chocolate

I love hot chocolate made with pure molten chocolate and milk. It is simple, yet delicious! No added sugar and no powdered mixes. I had my first hot chocolate this way in Ireland and just fell in love.

To celebrate all things hot chocolate, in February, when our customers purchase a small (one flavor) cup of gelato or larger, a small hot drink will be offered at 50% Off.

Perfect For Any Event - Prepackaged Gelato

For over a year, we have had customers request that we offer our gelato prepackaged for events. We struggled with the decision because we wanted to make sure that offering our gelato in a prepackaged container would not affect the quality our customers expected from our gelato.

After a year of consideration, we are so excited to offer our delicious, artisan gelato prepackaged for events.

We wanted to keep our packaging simple because the gelato deserves all the attention. The clear top is perfect for admiring the gelato before consumption.

Our prepackaged gelato is perfect for large and small events.

Indian Wedding & Reception

The end of last year, we had the opportunity to cater gelato for the very first time at an Indian reception. We were a little nervous, but very excited. I must admit that the event exceeded my expectations. It was so much fun!

We served several traditional flavors like pistachio gelato and mango sorbet. In addition, we served some unique flavors like sweet cheese gelato and burnt caramel pecan gelato. The guests were full of energy and passion. We served over 300 guests in 30 minutes. I have never moved so fast!

I wish I took some pictures, but once we finish setting up, we were serving gelato. I spoke with the photographer who confirmed that she too was unable to take pictures of the gelato. I promise to take pictures next time and share them on our blog.
