Mark the First Day of Spring with FREE Italian Ice! 

Rita's has Partnered with Alex's Lemonade Stand.
In 2006, Rita's became a proud corporate partner of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research and finding a cure for the disease. Named in honor of the late Alexandra “Alex” Scott, the foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) public charity, has raised more than $50 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 200 research projects nationally.

When embarking on the fundraising initiative in 2006, Rita’s set a goal to raise $100,000 by selling paper lemons to Rita’s guests for $1 each at every store location. With the support of our guests, franchise partners and Treat Team members, Rita’s raised a remarkable $510,000 to the foundation – more than five times the original goal.

In 2007, Rita's franchise partners, Treat Team members and guests raised $530,000 to help ALSF and in 2008 Rita's raised $520,000. In June 2009, Rita’s raised $450,000 to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

During our annual paper lemon campaign held in June 2011, Rita's was able to collect $545,000 and we are happy to have raised and donated more than $3 million to ALSF.

We would like to thank each of our guests who purchased a paper lemon for $1 to help us support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation's fight against childhood cancer. Together, we are helping to put the squeeze on pediatric cancer, one lemon at a time!
