Why Gelu Italian Ice Is Great For Events and Fundraisers

With summer just around the corner, the warm weather is expected to bring lots of fun outdoor events and fundraisers to the state of Texas. Whether you’re hosting a birthday party, barbecue, or a gala for charity, there’s an easy way to elevate any event: by getting Italian ice from Gelu!

We offer a fantastic selection of fruity and rich Italian ice flavors, including our Gelu 21 line, which features alcohol-infused, slushie-style cocktails! We’ve spent more than seven years perfecting our production process of flavored ice treats, and all of our flavors are dairy-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, and fat-free, so they’re a much healthier alternative to ice cream. 

No matter the season or the reason, Gelu has a delicious option for every social occasion, conveniently delivered through our mobile food carts. Read on to learn more about how our irresistible Italian ices can enhance your next event.

Birthday Parties

Gelu always loves to cater birthday parties, whether it’s for a youngster or an over-the-hill celebration. Guests love birthday cake, to be sure, but that can get old after a while, and dietary restrictions may preclude some attendees from partaking in the treat. Whether your guest list includes those on a vegan, gluten-free, or low-glycemic diet, you won’t have to worry about them running on empty if you staff your party with Gelu Italian ices. We have dozens of flavors, including Pina Colada and Cherry Lemon Drop, and many of these can be modified to be cruelty-free, celiac-friendly, or diet-accommodating. Give us a call or explore our website today to see what great and versatile options we offer!


Summer is an excellent time to get communities involved in relief and charity efforts. The weather is warm, the sun is shining, and people are generally in a more generous and relaxed mood. If you’re planning some kind of fundraising event or gala for charity, what better way to raise money and lift spirits than with an assortment of refreshing Italian ices?

Enhance your next event and take your fundraising efforts to next-level success with the enticing addition of our indulgent Italian ices. With flavor options to suit any palette, from blue raspberry to sweet tea to salted caramel, there’s something for everyone to love at Gelu. 

Entertainment Events

When the summer rolls around and the heat sets in, it’s essential to have an easy and tasty way to refresh yourself from the sweltering weather. Ice cream or soda are common choices, but these are high in calories, sugar, fat, or all of the above, and they generally don’t contain many natural ingredients.

By contrast, Gelu Italian ices are made with the finest and freshest ingredients including tropical fruits, all-natural cane sugar, and top-quality coffee beans. They’re a great way to rehydrate and replenish during outdoor entertainment events like concerts, county fairs, and neighborhood barbecues. So why not give us a try the next time you’re planning for a fun outing or get-together? No matter the size of your group or the flavor preferences of your guests, we have the versatility and the variety to keep everyone happy and every taste bud cool as a cucumber.

Try Gelu Italian Ice At Your Next Event!

We’re so excited for summer to be here in full swing, but in the meantime, you can still enjoy our delicious Italian ices and get familiar with our products. By the time the first June barbecue or 4th of July celebration rolls around, you’ll know why we’re one of Texas’ preferred caterers. Our Italian ices can make any event or fundraiser a bigger and better success. So give Gelu a try at your next special occasion; we’ll make it a true treat that will leave your guests asking for seconds!
