735 Addison Ave.Rock Hill, SC 29730
The idea was started because this kid sister named Sophie, has NF and her brothers wanted to do something about it.


What a Sweet Way to Fund a Cure for Neurofibromatosis

Why do we need a cure?
Because this tumor causing genetic disorder affects 1 in 3,000 people including a little girl named Sophie. Her big brothers wanted to find a way to raise funds and awareness for vital research being done by the Children’s Tumor Foundation. They found that selling sweet tea for their baby sister was a perfect way to do just that. They concocted their own secret recipe and set up a table in our front yard. Selling Sweet Tea for Sophie is one of their favorite things to do. And we love that they are learning to give of themselves to charity, especially one that we hold near and dear to our hearts.

Several McAlisters locations will be setting up Sweet Tea for Sophie stands outside their stores and will be providing all the tea, and supplies. It will be sold for 100% donations only. The only skills required are the willingness to engage people in conversation with a positive attitude while pouring a glass of Sweet Tea. We encourage families to volunteer together as it is a great learning experience for children and aligns with our origins. Shifts are: 11AM-2PM and2PM-5PM. We would like a minimum of 2 volunteers per shift.

Please see our other locations as well or visit: to see how you can host a stand of your own.
