Rita's Italian Ice Honored By BOCC

The Rita's Ice in Frederick was among the top 10 fundraisers among 550 stores in the company for Alex's Lemonade Stand. In a worksession this morning, the Frederick County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) recognized their efforts.

The Frederick location raised more than $10,700 in June, when guests were asked to purchase a paper lemon for $1.

Alex's Lemonade Stand raises funds for childhood cancer research. More than $545,00 was donated to the charity by 550 Rita's Ice locations.
