Buy a hand-spun milkshake and give back to Cincinnati Children’s

Indulge in a cool, creamy Gold Star Milkshake - For Children’s Sake! With every milkshake purchase, Gold Star donates a portion of the sales to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. It’s part of our goal to make the world, and our little corner of it, a more hospitable place. We’re proud to be the Chili of Choice at the hospital, and our partnership with Cincinnati Children’s is a great way to help our extended family – the community we serve. Cincinnati Children’s provides children the best care in the nation, and your purchase and our donation help provide the resources needed to continue their work - For Children’s Sake!


Gold Star and Cincinnati Children’s have been collaborators since the 1990’s, donating more than $300,000 to the hospital over the years.

Your support helps us change the outcome. Your donation to Cincinnati Children's will be used to support clinical and research initiatives that can impact pediatric medicine for children in our community and around the world. So, get to Gold Star, choose your milkshake and indulge. It’s never been so cool to do good!

Which milkshake
will you choose?

Your decision won’t be easy. With three classic flavors and three specialty milkshakes, you may have to have all six. That’s OK; it’s a delicious way to help kids throughout the region. Warning: consuming our milkshakes may be addictive, and may also cause extreme joy, a feeling of overwhelming satisfaction, a brain freeze or all of the above. Enjoy!
