More than 30 Detroit media personalities, including the WJBK Fox2 Detroit team, Evrod Cassimy and Kim DeGiulio from WDIV, and WCSX‘s Doug Podell (just to name a few!), lent a hand to serve Dean’s Country Fresh Moose Tracks ice cream. Detroit came hungry – The Salvation Army raised over $10,000 to support their critical social services and programs for those in need.

Jen joined Pretzel Bell’s Chef, Mike Trombly, and his daughter on Fox 2 to cook up a tasty Father’s Day treat.
