Jerod Mayo’s brand of frozen treat will help Boston hospital

Printed from:

BOSTON – If the cold weather isn’t enough to keep you cool, Jerod Mayo’s signature frozen treat from Shake Shack restaurants around the Hub could do the trick, and all the proceeds of Mayo’s LineShacker sales will benefit the Boston Medical Center.

The New England Patriots star linebacker and co-captain got excited over the combination of two favorite Boston treats, Shake Shack’s vanilla frozen custard and Flour Bakery’s acclaimed pecan sticky buns to create an original for the hospital, which he has supported for years.

The limited-edition shake from the hamburger chain combines the vanilla custard with the sticky bun flavors, topped with whipped cream, cinnamon sugar and toasted pecans.  The drink is available through Jan. 31 at Shake Shack’s four Boston area locations: 234-236 Newbury St., Boston; 49 Boylston St., Brookline; Legacy Place in Dedham and 92 Winthrop St., Cambridge.

Mayo has raised more than $1 million for the hospital through his celebrity-bowling tournament, The Mayo Bowl, according to 44 Communications, a public relations agency in Boston. Affiliated with the Boston University medical school, the 496-bed South End hospital is a private, not-for-profit organization serving the city and the region.

In order to spread holiday cheer Mayo joined Shake Shack team and Flour Bakery’s Joanne Chang at the hospital on Dec. 21 to visit young patients and their families. They also handed out mini Shake Shack footballs and Flour gift cars. Staff members where also treated to lunch and confections.
