Rita’s Italian Ice sells paper lemons for
pediatric cancer research
Each June Rita’s commits to raising money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Over the past 7 years, with the help of our loyal Guests, we’ve raised $3.5 million dollars and counting!
Our newly established Rita’s Fund of Hope will ensure that the travel needs of families whose children are battling cancer are met. Our new goal is to raise $1 million over the next 2 years. Thank you for your continued support!
This year, from June 5 through June 18, more than 625 Rita's locations will ask guests to donate $1 for a paper lemon to raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and the fight against childhood cancer. Guests also have the option to Text-To-Donate a one-time $5 donation.
