Everyone get out of the way—Gronk made food for the kids. 

Well, he didn’t make it so much as serve it up freezing cold. 

According to Mark Shanahan and Meredith Goldstein of The Boston Globe, Rob Gronkowski stopped by Boston Children's Hospital this Tuesday to spread some cheer and deliver ice cream to patients. 

Naturally, the New England Patriots tight end threw on a giant chef toque for the occasion, because floppy hats are awesome and well within Gronkowski's wheelhouse.

A chef’s hat is like his version of Patch Adams' nose.

After a summer of Entourage cameos and concert dance-offs, this week has been a period of giving back for the tight end. Shanahan and Goldstein report that Gronkowski's mother shaved his head on Sunday for the One Mission Kids Cancer Buzz-Off at Gillette Stadium.

All that beautiful, gel-strangled hair—snuffed out like a candle in the wind.

It’s all for a good cause.

Gronkowski told he had a blast returning to the event for the fourth year in a row:

It’s a cool event overall. It’s my fourth year doing it. I think it’s my third year buzzing my head actually. It’s just cool to interact with all the kids here, supporting their friends, supporting a family member and all their parents here and everything. It’s just a cool event where everyone comes together and raise money for a great cause.

Concerts, movies and philanthropies—they're all fun parts of what this party Gronk calls life.
