Firebirds participates in Lemonade Days June 11-13
Charlotte, N.C. (June 9, 2021) — Lemonade is always a refreshing choice this time of year. It’s even more delicious when it’s prepared with a special cause in mind. From Friday, June 11 through Sunday, June 13, visit Firebirds Wood Fired Grill and buy a cup of its freshly squeezed lemonade from the old-fashioned lemonade stand outside and Firebirds will donate all proceeds from the sale to finding a cure for childhood cancer.
Firebirds marks its seventh year of participation in this annual event, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s (ALSF) national Lemonade Days, by setting a fundraising goal of $150,000, with each of the restaurant’s 52 locations in 19 states participating in the three-day event.
In addition to lemonade sales, Firebirds will donate $2 from each purchase of Tito’s Lemonade Drop and $1 from each purchase of its Big Daddy Lemon Cake during Lemonade Days. Guests can also round up their check to the nearest dollar and ALSF will receive the difference or make a donation to ALSF directly on their receipt.
“Firebirds Wood Fired Grill is one of ALSF’s most dedicated partners, raising money year-round to help fund research and treatments,” said Liz Scott, ALSF’s co-executive director and mother to ALSF founder, Alex Scott. “We couldn’t be prouder of its executive team and all of its volunteers at every Firebirds location across the country for their commitment to eradicate childhood cancer.”
“We value our relationship with ALSF and are committed to helping support ALSF’s efforts to find cures for childhood cancer,” said Stephen Loftis, vice president of marketing for Firebirds Wood Fired Grill. “That’s why we’ve set a goal this year to raise $150,000, and we look forward to exceeding that goal…one cup at a time.”
To date, Firebirds has raised $2.2 million for the national charity which is ranked a top four-star non-profit organization by Charity Navigator, the leading charity evaluator in America.
ALSF was born from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996 – 2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex said she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex’s first stand, ALSF has raised more than $200 million.
