This year, Right Path for Washington County is the recipient. David Broughton says a committee goes through all the applications from area organizations.

They look for how they benefit the community, how great the need is, and their capability to reach their goals.

Right Path for Washington County promotes healthy youth development and their mission stands out.

"Right Path fit all these criteria, given the alcohol and drug issues that we have here locally and probably across the country it just made a great fit," says Broughton Foods General Manager Dave Broughton.

The ice cream social usually brings in about $23,000. Tickets are already on sale for the July 8th event.

You can pick up advance tickets for $3.50 at Broughton Food in Marietta, the Washington County Food Pantry, and the Marietta Chamber of Commerce.

Tickets are $4.00 the day of the social.
