TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Many may have seen Ben's Bells hanging up around Tucson, they are a group that promotes kindness, this weekend several local creameries are teaming up to help raise funds for this worthy cause.

The 2nd Annual Ice cream Showdown will be going down in downtown Tucson on Saturday, July 11 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The competition will have 10 Arizona creameries going head to head, scooping up and dishing out more than 20 flavors of ice cream.
