Additionally, each June, the restaurant participates in the ALSF’s fundraiser, Lemonade Days, in which it donates to the cause all proceeds from the sale of house-made lemonade at a stand near the restaurants’ front door. Nationwide, Firebirds has already raised more than $2 million for ALSF, one cup of lemonade at a time.
