Start your day with a cold, creamy dessert for breakfast at Sarris Candies this week as part of a National Multiple Sclerosis fundraiser.

Got the heading back to school, vacation is over, summer is coming to an end blahs?

Sarris Candies in Canonsburg has a sweet remedy, one that will let visitors be both naughty and nice.

Between 9 a.m. and noon through Friday, the Washington County candy company is participating in “Ice Cream for Breakfast,” a promotion for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society .

Skip the bacon and eggs and come to the ice cream parlor for breakfast through Aug. 24, with Sarris matching a portion of sales for that time period each day to benefit the Pennsylvania Keystone Chapter, according to a news release.

”Your purchase will help researchers find a cure for this debilitating disease,” the release notes.

“Multiple sclerosis is a progressive, immune-mediated disorder. MS affects many families, including members of ours. This disorder means the system designed to keep your body healthy mistakenly attacks parts of your body that are vital to every day function. The protective coverings of nerve cells are damaged, which leads to diminished function in the brain and spinal cord. Your purchase will help continue funding researchers to find a cure for this debilitating disease that affects 2.3 million people worldwide,” the release adds.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
