ST. LAWRENCE, Pa. -

Summer may be winding down, but there's still time to grab one last Italian ice and help out a good cause.

The Rita's on Perkiomen Avenue in St. Lawrence will hold a fundraiser for the American Heart Association from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Sunday, which is also Rita's last day of the season.

In addition to the ice on sale at Rita's, the adjacent Noah's miniature golf course will be open and a raffle will be held.

The event will be dedicated to the memory of Richard Nowotarski Jr., one of the owners, who passed away last year, said his son, Joshua Nowotarski.

"We really miss him, and we want to continue his legacy," Josh said. "This is the first one, and hopefully one of many."
