Auntie Anne's Partners with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation in Fight Against Childhood Cancer
Throughout September—Childhood Cancer Awareness month—the world's largest hand-rolled soft pretzel franchise is once again asking fans to join them in raising funds for research in the fight against childhood cancer.
From now until September 30, guests can donate to ALSF at participating Auntie Anne's stores or when they order in the Pretzel Perks app. One hundred percent of these funds will be donated to ALSF. In return, app users who donate will receive a buy one, get one free pretzel with their next Auntie Anne's purchase.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is an American pediatric cancer charity inspired by Alexandra "Alex" Scott, a girl from Connecticut who used lemonade stands to raise money to help find a cure for the disease that took her life at the age of eight.
Since Alex’s first lemonade stand in 2000, ALSF, which was founded by her parents in 2005, has raised more than $200 million. Auntie Anne's has raised more than $5.1 million for ALSF since 2011.
"Auntie Anne's has always been an extremely generous partner, but we are especially grateful for their continued support this year. Pediatric cancer research depends on organizations like ours to fund new cures and less toxic treatments. Through campaigns with partners like Auntie Anne's, we are able to raise awareness of and funds for childhood cancer research," said Liz Scott, Alex's Mom and Co-Executive Director of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. "Together, we can find cures and end childhood cancer."
