Fighting childhood cancer has never been so sweet!
Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour restaurants have teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for a delicious fundraiser.
Through the end of September, stop by any Farrell’s location and order one of two special sundaes — both created by a group of young cancer survivors — and Farrell’s will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of your dessert to the organization.
The funds will be used to support the group’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

There will be a food truck “rally” Tuesday (June 25) at the County Administrative Center at 4080 Lemon St. in downtown Riverside.
