TUCSON (KVOA) - El Tour and Tucson Medical Center came together to provide a cool treat to frontline workers who continue to battle the coronavirus.
Event organizers say hundreds of ice cream treats were handed out Tuesday to hospital workers while they enjoyed a social event at the TMC campus.
Those with El Tour say the event was put together to show their appreciation for the hard work our frontline workers continue to do.
"Obviously, these medical workers are working long hard days. They just need a little pick me up as they're going on to their shifts or coming off their shifts," TJ Juskiewicz, El Tour Executive Director, said. "So, we decided to come out. Ice cream puts a smile on anyone's face."
The special event also included an old-fashioned ice cream truck to help hand out the ice cream treats to hospital staff.
