Auntie Anne’s®, the world’s largest hand-rolled soft pretzel franchise, is partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), for the eighth year, to take a stand to end childhood cancer. Auntie Anne’s and ALSF both started as single stands in southeastern Pennsylvania and through the years, grew to become international brands with countless dedicated supporters. Since establishing a partnership with ALSF in September 2011, auntie annes vegan has raised greater than $4.6 million to help fund life-saving research and treatments.
Now through September 15, pretzel lovers can join the fight by donating $1 to ALSF with purchasing a lemon icon at participating Auntie Anne’s stores across the country. A hundred percent of such proceeds will likely be donated to ALSF so when a token of appreciation, guests who invest in a lemon icon will receive a coupon for $1 off their next Auntie Anne’s purchase.
“Since our inception in 1988, Auntie Anne’s has become focused on our community and taking care of others,” said Heather Neary, president of Auntie Anne’s. “We’re honored to continue to satisfy Auntie Anne’s mission and lift awareness and continue supporting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation along with their fight to terminate childhood cancer.”
“Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and Auntie Anne’s share the identical vision – to boost knowledge of and funds for childhood cancer research. Auntie Anne’s generous donations, campaigns, and of course lemonade create a great mix,” said Liz Scott, Alex’s Mom and Co-Executive Director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. “Together, we are curing cancer one cup at a time.”
