In 2015 Fallon collaborated with Ben & Jerry’s to create “The Tonight Dough Starring Jimmy Fallon”, a specialty ice cream flavor with proceeds benefiting SeriousFun. This spring, the funds donated by Jimmy Fallon from the sale of the ice cream surpassed the $1 million mark. Last night’s performance marked a celebration of this impressive milestone.

“We are thrilled to reach this incredible $1 million milestone from ‘The Tonight Dough’ sales through our relationship with Jimmy Fallon and Ben & Jerry’s,” said SeriousFun CEO Blake Maher. “They are both fantastic partners whose support helps ensure that we can provide transformative camp experiences to children living with many different types of serious illnesses all around the world, totally free of charge.”
