No Taxation without Relaxation

Kona Ice in Southwest Marion County to Host Third Annual National “Chill Out” Day

Island-Themed Truck to Give Away FREE Shaved Ice at the Lawrie CPA Group and Community South Hospital and Cancer Center to Help Community “Chill Out” on Tax Day

WHAT: With Tax Day right around the corner, many of us are reaching into our pockets to pay-off Uncle Sam. To relieve taxpayers of the stress associated with meeting the federal deadline, Kona Ice will be hosting its third annual National “Chill Out” Day.

The island-inspired truck will be parked at the Lawrie CPA Group and Community South Hospital and Cancer Center to hand out FREE cups of tropical shaved ice and complimentary Hawaiian leis to all who stop by. The refreshing treat will ensure that there is no taxation without relaxation this tax season.

The event is open to the public and media cameras. Interviews will be available onsite.

WHY: National “Chill Out” Day is one of the many ways Kona Ice is encouraging the nation to take a step back, relax and enjoy a Kona. National “Chill Out” Day is one small, yet powerful, way the brand hopes to put a smile on people’s faces. Through partnerships with schools, youth sports leagues and other neighborhood organizations, Kona Ice has given back over $35 million to the communities it serves.
